Reducing Ripple Control


Thread Starter


My SMPS just died. So, I've got a 3kva transformer controlled on the primary by phase angle firing. It's ... working just OK. However, I still struggle to get an accurate voltage reading from the secondary output. I think this is due to the high ripple.

How can I reduce this?
I guess I'm wondering what the rule of thumb for capacitors should be.

I've got a figure of 10,000uf per amp on a standard rectified output.

Sorry, I'm just stumped.
