Assistance with rectifiers in PSUD
 
I'm trying to figure out how to use the rectifiers that are in the text file that comes with PSUD. For the life of me I can't figure out how to use say, a 6AX5GT with the program. The rectifier is in the text file along with the parameters but I can't figure out how to get it to appear in the program so I can model a power supply.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Double-click on the rectifier in the default circuit. You will then be given the option of setting rectifier properties.

Click on the left bottom of the input (transformer/rectifier) section. Select tube rectifier option. Then instead of SS rectifiers, tubes will be in the selection window when selected.

Thanks for the response guys.

Okay, so I change the power supply type to vacuum tube full wave type. The default rectifier comes up as a 5AR4, the rectifier I want to use is a 6AX5GT. When I double click on the rectifier type, the list of rectifiers comes up. The 6AX5 is not on the list. I go to the text file that you can download from the Duncan Amps site and the 6AX5GT is one of the many rectifiers with the parameters listed. How do I upload those parameters to use a 6AX5GT rectifier in the circuit?

Go to the directory where you have PSUD stored. There should be a text file titled Rectifiers. This is where the data for the rectifiers is stored. Copy the parameters for the rectifier you want to use and paste it into text file. I'll go ahead and share my rectifier text file with you. See below.

I have a feeling that I'm going to have a bruise on my forehead from when my palm strikes it when I figure this out but...

I've got every rectifier under the sun in the rectifier text file but only 31 tube rectifiers out of 111 appear in the program when I open it. How do you change the text file to show all the rectifiers (or at least the ones I want to use) because the ones that are showing up in the program don't appear to have anything special done to them in the text file to make them show up in the program.

Sorry to be an idiot but I'm sure it's simple once you know how.

Do I insert the parameters from below into the spot in the upper part of the document?

Did you download the expanded rectifiers.txt file and drop it in your PSUD folder? A much shorter list installs with the program...

BHD 25th January 2013 09:57 PM

Thank you very, very much. That did it!

:D
