Frequently asked questions
Definition: A transformerless power supply converts high AC input voltage (120V or 230V) to the desired output DC low voltage (3V, 5V, or 12V) with low current output in milliamps.
The main component of a transformerless power supply circuit is a voltage-dropping capacitor, or X-rated capacitor, which is specially designed for AC mains. This X-rated capacitor is connected in series to a phase line of AC to drop the voltage.
Thus, the output of the transformer gives alternating current (AC) and not direct current (DC) line. Q. A transformer is designed to convert an AC voltage of 220 V to an AC voltage of 12V dc line. If the input terminals are connected to a DC voltage of 220V, the transformer 12v dc usually burns.
Distribution transformers always operate at a load less than the rated full load. Power transformers always operate at full load. Distribution transformers are designed to give maximum efficiency at 60 to 70% of the rated load. Power transformers have maximum efficiency at full load system.
Transformers work on the magnetic effect of current. Since DC doesn't have any magnetic field, it will not get stepped up or down. So you will get 0 volts at the output. It is very simple. You will have no output.
