22degrees is much more realistic.
60 degrees is not what we use/find.

Hi all,
sorry if it is already answered.
I don't want to read the whole thread
Is there any difference ideal capacitors size between dual secondary dual diode bridge
and center tap transformer with single diode bridge?


Regards

It depends. An extra diode drop may or may not make a big difference, depending on how much spare voltage you have. To understand the issue you will need to read the thread. Sorry!

I did promise some pictures.

The first is a 24 VCT flatpack transformer driven two diodes into a capacitor (10,000 uf) and 50 ohm resistor. Note the unbalanced peaks which can indicate diode mismatch or unbalanced windings.

The second is the same circuit with only a 470 uf Capacitor doing the filtering and a toroid transformer with more than 10 times more current capability.

So you can get an idea of the maximum and minimum charging times. Note on the toroid it is the back side that lingers!

First one dominated by transformer resistance; second one dominated by transformer inductance? One could imagine some ringing superimposed on the charging pulse in the second one. Just a guess.

Hello,

Why is the scale voltage only 20mV ??

Regards.

I think the question is more complicated than it looks. Depends of PA topology, PS type and so on. I'll give an example.
There was japanese patent from '70s that prevent voltage drop to driver stages. The sound quality improvement is significant.
There is more issues. No one rectifier 'love' big capacitors. The diode recovery can inject significant spikes in the rails. Sometimes the 'shunt 100nF' to the main electrolytes are crucial ... so on.
Other things. If you have 'magnificent' sound in 75% from rated power is beter that 'good' sound in all power range ....

I have an apology.
I was considering only 50Hz supplies.
Simon has shown the data for a 60Hz supply.

We are measuring current! The scope is calibrated in voltage it is a small resistor of .1 ohms in the ground leg we are viewing.

Gootee I didn't mean to drive you off. I was impressed by your math. Keep up the good work.
