.... With larger transformers (500VA and above), the DC resistance is usually so low that even a very small offset will cause mechanical noise due to saturation.....

.....From the DC perspective, the most critical region is at no-load. The saturation effects are greatly reduced when we are drawing significant current, so we will hopefully be able to simplify the circuit......[/COLOR]
Yes, the diodes are the protectors for the electrolytics against voltages above 700mV.

A question: what are online concerning reports and papers to this topic in your language (Spanish language)? Thank you for advices.

No articles in spanish regarding this topic that I'm aware of.

I admit I prefer english spoken forums as they bring together a wider spectrum of knowleadge.
