Default dc-filtering-ac-power-station

Hi

Days ago, I fixed dc-blockers for my BOSOZ and F1 and found that they were working well (reference thread: Forte Audio 1a). And, I got real effect much better than other tweaks with quality of wires or components.

Therefore, I am going to make, say, a dc-filtering-ac-supply-station as shown below. The chassis will be of aluminum and will be directly connected to the earth. This station will cover Pass F1, BOSOZ, CD player and DVD projector.

Do you have any opinion or advice?
Particularly, regarding !!! SAFETY !!! of life. . .

Regards
jH

Hi, JH,

How are you

I just replace the cap for my bench drill machine, the cap is something like 10uF, 400VAC. Some of the proamps with SMPS also got cap in their AC input, but not that size (10.000uF), I think. Is it OK to put 50VDC cap for 220VAC?

The voltage over the capacitor is only few volts.

Here's how I built my dc blocker (which turned out to be useless). Home made circuit board with thick and wide traces.

Discrete Mains EMI filter ?

Here is a few gadgets for cleaning up the AC supply. Just scroll down the page

Just for inspiration. With schematics.

Hi Lumanauw

I'm fine thanks

The bigger, the berrerrrrrrrr . . . . . . maybe.
The polarized electrolytic capacitor doesn't like to see overvoltage or reversevoltage. If capacitor sees the overvoltage or the reversevoltage, it becomes hot temper, and boils the yellow blood inside, and gets high blood pressure, and BAM !!!!!!! Meanwhile, the barrier potential of the bridge diode is about 0.7V. Luckily, the capacitor hardly see voltages higher than +/- 0.7V in this case. -- [i]my hope[i/]

Question: how much reversevoltage we could safely ignore?
Lumanauw, this is your homework. Solve it and tell me

Regards
jH


Thanks, Diar and steenoe.

Hi,

if you want even more effect you could try ac-balanced-power combined with the dc-filters.
Balanced AC power

Hi Wuffwaff

The ac-balanced-power is intersting.
By the way, I think that the dc-filtering does the ac-balancing at the same time. Doesn't it . . . ?

Hi,

if you mean that after balancing the dc out of the mains is also removed you´re right.
