How to convert alternating current to direct current?

I will show you the basic working principle of traditional chargers or power supplies that we use in daily life. At the end of this video, you will have learned what stages the AC to DC conversion process of power supplies consists of and how it takes place.

The stages of converting AC to DC, as here, consist of first reducing the voltage with the help of a transformer, then rectification, filtering and finally regulation. The conversion process I will show here will be based on the example of converting 220V AC to 5V DC, which is used in many countries around the world. Since the conversion process is logically the same, you can make calculations according to the voltage value in your country if you wish. Now let's examine in detail what the shape of the voltage is after each step and what the circuit diagram looks like.
