 5th February 2006, 10:46 AM #1 lscangus   diyAudio Member   Join Date: Oct 2005 PS Capacitance of Aleph X I am building an Aleph X with about 300W of power consumption. I am using 4 X 47000uf on my PS. will that be enoguh? Angus

What is the difference when i add the resistor between it?

 5th February 2006, 12:25 PM #4 Netlist   diyAudio Moderator Emeritus     Join Date: Jan 2003 From practice; you get a big reduction in ripple after every R and a small voltage drop. The smaller the resistor value, the smaller the voltage drop and the smaller the heat dissipation. When choosing bigger value resistors you start wasting too much power and need bigger resistors and heatsinks to cool them. Not sure if a bigger value, say 0.5ohm has any effect on further decreasing ripple. Theory is for other people. /Hugo
 5th February 2006, 12:38 PM #5 jh6you Account Disabled   Join Date: Aug 2002 Location: Near to the Pacific Ocean When R = 0.1 and C is 47,000uf, Xc = 6.28 x 100 (50Hz) x 0.047 = 0.034 R+Xc = (0.1^2+0.034^2)^0.5 = 0.106 Ripple voltage attenuation = 20*log(0.034/0.106) = -10dB So, better supply voltage regulation . . . CRC = -10dB CRCRC = -20dB My calculation might be incorrect . . . anyhow, I am just trying to demonstrate how the ripple voltage could be reduced by the R . . . Regards jh
 5th February 2006, 12:53 PM #6 wuffwaff   diyAudio Member     Join Date: Aug 2001 Location: Ingolstadt Germany Hi, I´m using a CLC with 50000uF - 2.2mH - 100000uF per rail. This has even less ripple and doesn´t produce as much heat as resistors. I´ve used intertechnik torobars and tested them up to 10A without getting into saturation.

so less ripple current is better?
