What is power supply?

Answer If it is a computer power supply it is the box that gives the computer its power from the outlet.

What is a power supply?

A power supply gives electrical power to all the components and parts of the computer. The power supply consists on several wires that connect to specific parts of the computer. Examples are the IDE/SATA CD/DVD Drive, IDE/SATA Hard Disk Drive, the motherboard, etc. Power supplies are only a computer (MORE)

What does a power supply do?

...It "supplies the power" to whatever device you're referring to. Baffling, I know. Another answer: A power supply converts 120V or 240V AC power (sometimes called "wall", "line" or "mains" power) into various regulated DC voltages needed in a piece of electronic equipment. In a computer, fo (MORE)

What does the power supply do?

A power supply does not create power or energy. This would be in violation of the Law of Conservation of Energy. Rather, a power supply changes the form of an available source of power or electrical energy into a form that is acceptable for use by electrical or electronic equipment. The input (MORE)

What are power supplies?

Power supplies are typically thought of as electronic or electrical equipment which changes the form of a source of power into a form which is acceptable for use by equipment that performs a useful function. For example, in the typical home, power is available at electrical wall outlets in the fo (MORE)

What does the power supply supply power to?

Everything in your computer requires power. The power supply has leads running to the motherboard to support CPUs, PCI slots and their respective devices, USB ports and optical drives. #2 --- A power supply does not really supply power in the sense of a reservoir, it is actually a power conver (MORE)

What voltages are supplies by the power supply on your system?

The power supply in a PC is a complex device using switch mode circuitry and transformers to generate +and- 12v, for modems and communications ports. +and-5volts for the logic circuitry,3volts for the processor. All these supplies are generated and electronically regulated. It is such a waste when t (MORE)

What supply voltage does a computer need?

At Least, 115 volts. Which is standard from a wall outlet. If should not matter how many volts your computer needs, but the watts does. For most computers they need anywhere from 100-800 watts.

Why is 5 volts DC used as a voltage in a power supply?

The circuit designer typically picks a family of devices to implement the functionality of the circuit. The devices will fall into a range of voltages. Many integrated circuits operate at 5VDC, so it is an obvious choice for many applications.

How do you find out the power supply voltage from my wall outlet?

AC power, 120v 60Hz in the USA. Can be measured at the wall outlet with a DMM set on AC volts. usually, the power supply output is DC. Example: A 5 Volt DC power supply, the 120V AC from the wall outlet goes to a step down transformer (in the DC power supply) then, the stepped down 5Volt AC power go (MORE)

What is better uninterruptible power supply or automatic voltage regulator?

It depends on the application, and on the implementation of the UPS. Some UPS devices function as an AVR by boosting the output voltage when the input voltage sags. A UPS will also help you during a complete power outage, which an AVR will not. A UPS however has batteries which need to be periodical (MORE)

What is ripple voltage in 12 volt power supply?

A: Ripple is a residual voltage evident as voltage following the AC input frequency. The ripple magnitude is a function of not enough of both filtering capacitance or overloading the output. Increasing capacitance will reduce the ripple or reducing the loading

Does a low voltage supply increase power consumption?

Lowering voltage will lower power consumption, but there will come a point where the desired operation of the device will not be met. For example if you had a variable voltage like a dimmer on a light bulb, you can reduce the voltage to a point where the bulb no longer emits a useful amount of ligh (MORE)

How is the voltage of the power supply for a series circuit calculated?

The circuit by itself doesn't determine the voltage of the powersupply. If there's some additional requirement that goes along with thecircuit, such as "The current through the circuit must be XYZ amperes.", or "Thevoltage across the third component from the north end of the circuit shall be ABCvol (MORE)

What is amount of voltage supplied at night?

In theory, voltage should be the same around the clock. In practice you may get a tad higher voltage at nights, as there's less load on the system. With most people asleep, there aren't as many machines running.

How does poor power factor effect the supply system?

'Poor power factor' means that a load is drawing more load current is necessary for the amount of energy it consumes. The result is larger voltage drops along the supply lines and greater energy losses along those same lines. To overcome these problems, it would be necessary to install cables and ot (MORE)

What supplies power to a starter in an ignition system?

In most common starting systems for gas (and, for that matter, diesel) powered vehicles, when the ignition switch is turned to the "start" position, several things happen. The combination ignition/start switch has multiple contacts: some allow electrical power to go to various accessories, some prov (MORE)

Which voltages are supported by a Toshiba power supply?

The input voltage range for the Toshiba power supply is AC 100V - 240V. The output voltage is DC 19V / output current is 4.74A. This power supply comes with a power cord and packaging will state voltage recommended for the product.

What is a 13.2 Voltage power supply used for?

It can be used for anything with a nominal 12 v requirement. Incars everything runs on a nominal voltage of 12 v but is designedto run on 13.8 v which is the voltage when the car is running.
