1

Most power supplies are made up of the following four basic sections: transformer, rectifier, filter, and what else?

Regulator

2

What steps up or steps down the input line voltage and isolates the power supply from the power line?

Transformer

3

What converts the alternating current input signal to a pulsating direct current?

Rectifier

4

What maintains the output of the power supply at a constant level in spite of large changes in load current or input line voltages?

Regulator

5

What provides two equal voltages to the conventional full-wave rectifier?

Center-tapped transformer

6

What is the conversion of an alternating current to a pulsating direct current?

Rectification

7

What is current called that flows in pulses in the same direction?

Pulsating DC

8

Which terms are AC voltages normally specified in?

RMS values

9

Which type of device has two or more diodes arranged so that load current flows in the same direction during each half cycle of the ac supply?

Full-wave rectifier

12

What is the most basic type of power supply filter?

Capacitor filter

13

Which type of filter is primarily used in power supplies where voltage regulation is important and where the output current is relatively high and subject to varying load conditions?

Which type of diode blocks current until a specified voltage is applied?

Zener diode

21

Which circuitry provides a constant current output?

Current regulator

22

What are used primarily to develop high voltages where low current is required?

Voltage multipliers

23

The DC output of the voltage multiplier ranges from 1000 to how many volts?
