First you connect a trnsformer to the main supply and then a rectfier .youmay connect a zener diode or a resistor or a capacitor as a filter circuit

### What is the difference between an inductive low pass filter and a capacitive low pass filter?

Where you are measuring. A simple filter will be two elements - a capacitor or inductor and a resistor. A capacitor will tend to "trap" low frequencies. In the case of a lowpass filter made of a capacitor and resistor, the output voltage will be measured across the capacitor. Inductors are the opposite, so the output would be across the resistor.

### What do you mean the 1st order and 2nd order filter circuit?

1st order that has in low pass filter one resistor and a capacitor in parellal to ground .And the 2nd order filter has one pole as a above and second as resistor in series and capacitor for gain and the refers to the number of components (C,L).

### What is an RC filter for a ripple?

Place a capacitor across the output or load and you have your filter. This assumes that your load is a resistor. The capacitor you use depends on the frequency of the ripple. Lower frequencies require larger capacitors. A resistor may be required to make sure you do not damage any of the electronics either in series with the capacitor or immediately after the power source.

### Why inductor use in series capacitor in parallel?

That depends on the type of circuit you are talking about. Sometimes both an inductor and capacitor are both in parallel with each other. This is called a tank circuit. Sometimes they are both used in series. These are both examples of resonant circuits. Sometimes the inductor can be in parallel with an applied voltage and the capacitor in series. This is a form of high pass filter. On the other hand, the inductor can… Read More

### Which type of filter is independent of load why?

LC filter It is a combination of inductor and capacitor filter. Here an inductor is connected in series and a capacitor is connected in parallel to the load as shown in fig 5.6. As discussed earlier, a series inductor filter will reduce the ripple, when increasing the load current. But in case of a capacitor filter it is reverse that when increasing current the ripple also increases. So a combination of these two filters would… Read More

### What is a capacitor filter?

Capacitor has many applications in electronics circuits, one of its application is in FILTERS. Mainly two types of Filters are formed with the help of capacitor namely, i)Low Pass Filter(LPF) ii)High Pass Filter(HPF) Impedance of capacitor is inversely propotional to the frequency, therefore a capacitor in series with resistor will act as Low Pass Filter. since all the high frequency are passed to ground.

### How does capacitor in the circuit reduces the noise?

A capacitor in a circuit reduces noise because a capacitor resists a change in voltage. In combination with resistive and inductive components, even parasitic ones, a capacitor in parallel with a signal or voltage line represents a low pass filter.

### Capacitor when connected in parallel act as fitler why?

A capacitor impedance is effected by frequency; the capacitor can be modelled as: 1/(j*w*C), j = i = imaginary number, w = omega (frequency in radians), C = capacitance in Farads. To understand filtering, you must look at the output vs. the input relationship - Vo/Vi. If you have a capacitor in SERIES with a resistor, and your output is across the capacitor, this boils down to a simple voltage divider: Vo = Vi*1/(j*w*C) /… Read More

### How surge current is produced in a capacitor input filter?

Being that the capacitor appears as a short during the initial charging, the current through the diodes can momentarily be quite high. To reduce risk of damaging the diodes, a surge current limiting resistor is placed in series with the filter and load.

### Why it is necessary to connect ceramic disc capacitor across filter capacitor?

The filter capacitor has inductance and is therefore not very responsive to short term transients, i.e. fast rising or falling current edges. The ceramic disk capacitor, on the other hand, has very little inductance, and therefore is very responsive to short term transients. It is normal "best practices" to connect a small ceramic disk capacitor at each IC's Vcc terminal while also using bulk capacitance in the power supply and at various other places. For… Read More

### Effect of the capacitor to the low frequency waveform?

The differential equation for a capacitor is dv/dt = i/c. Set that up in a circuit and force an AC power source, such as sin(theta), and you will see that lowering the frequency will increase the equivalent resistance. I'll leave that exercise for you. The net result is that a series capacitor is a high-pass filter, while a parallel capacitor is a low-pass filter.

### Why tilt is formed for square wave input in highpass filter?

Lets have an example of simple RC high pass filter. Here, we take output across Resistor(in HPF). The tilt is because of charging of capacitor. you can say, as capacitor charges (ofcourse with voltage) the same amount of voltage has to drop across resistor ( to follow KVL). Since we are taking output across Resistor, so we see small voltage drop (as tilt). This can be minimized by keeping RC time constant large.

### Why you are using bleeder resistor in LC filter?

In LC filter , Bleeder resistance is connected in Parallel with the load to maintain the minimum current through the choke and so the performance of the Filter improves.

### Why does the emitter bypass capacitor increase the voltage gain?

In the common emitter configuration, gain is hFe or collector resistance divided by emitter resistance, whichever is less. Placing a capacitor across the emitter resistor effectively makes the emitter resistor less, for higher frequencies, so the gain is higher for higher frequencies. This creates a high pass filter, or a low cut filter, depending on what you want to call it.

### What is the function of a bypass capacitor in an amplifier?

Bypass capacitors are used to bypass (shunt) unwanted signals to the ground. A common use is in power supplies where a bypass capacitor is connected in parallel with the main filter capacitor to shunt noise and other high frequency interference to ground which the main capacitor may not be able to do.

### How capacitor filter works?

capacitor (C1) is connected across the output of the rectifier in parallel with the load. The RC charge time of the filter capacitor (C1) must be short and the RC discharge time must be long to eliminate ripple action when using this filter. In other words, the capacitor must charge up fast with preferably no discharge at all. Better filtering also results when the frequency is high; therefore, the full-wave rectifier output is easier to… Read More

### What is the function of the resistor into capacitor?

A RC circuit is a simple filtering circuit. The impedance of R will stay the same across the frequency band. The impedance of C will vary according to 1/jwC (j = i = imaginary number, w = omega/frequency in radians, C = capacitance in Farads). As frequency varies from low frequency to high frequency, an increasingly smaller amount of the signal voltage will "drop" across the capacitor. This is known as a first order (one… Read More

### What effect does the series resistance of a capacitor used in a capacitor filter have on diode current and ripple voltage compared with an ideal capacitor of no resistance?

The effective resistance of the capacitor reduces the ripple current through the capacitor making it less effective in its function of smoothing the voltage. But if the capacitor filter is fed by a transformer and diodes, the resistance of the transformer exceeds that of the capacitor.

### Why does a capacitor block DC but allow AC to pass through it?

A capacitor blocks DC, while allowing AC to pass through it, because of its nature in resisting a change in voltage. The equation of a capacitor is ... dv/dt = i/c ... which means that the rate of change of the voltage is proportional to current and inversely proportional to capacitance. If you place DC across a capacitor, it will initially allow current to flow. As it charges, if the current is coming through a… Read More

### Could anybody please explain how exactly high pass and low pass filters work?

Filters are composed of capacitors and inductors. These component "react" differently to different frequencies. If you modulated the voltage frequency to a series capacitor, it would start out looking like a very big resistance, which would become incrementally smaller as the frequency is increased. Inductors act in the exact opposite fashion. A simple lowpass filter is compossed of a resistance and capacitor in series, with the output across the capacitor. Using a voltage divider: Voutput… Read More

### How could one obtain the low and high frequency of the amplifire?

A low bandpass filter and a separate high bandpass filter should give the results required. These are usually in the form of crossover networks commonly used in speaker design. For low frequencies an LRC network is used (inductor, resistor, capacitor) and in high frequencies a simple electrolytic bipolar capacitor can be used. In more elaborate systems these can be active circuits (powered) or passive circuits as I previously mentioned.
