I was meaning that at half wave, only 2 diodes work.
For exemple : D1-D3 for +half wave, D2-D4 for -half wave.
In 2 diodes rectifier, the 2 always work.

You got him on semantics, he probably meant "conduct". Sure they are working when they are conducting, but they are also working when not conducting. They are blocking. When they no longer block they are considered not working.


** All four diodes conduct - half of them during each half cycle.

With two diode, full wave rectifiers its one diode per half cycle.

The claim about extending diode life was bullshit

Just like every single claim YOU post.

And when they specify a mosfet (for instance) at a current capacity

You think? I happen to stumble across a MOSFET in a TO-227 that was
spec'ed for 300A & 1500W. How is that useful? Shouldn't they also say
that it requires a LN2-cooled heatsink? And if you do need, say, a 15A
MOSFET, how do you find it, what with all the bogus spec's?

It's interesting to test parts to see how much margin there is from
the data sheet. Numbers like 5:1 are common. Ceramic capacitors can be
over 20:1.

I use "abs max 2 volt reverse" schottky diodes at -5, and 7 volt max
PHEMTS at 15.

A 12 volt max LM1117 regulator fails at about 60. Most mosfet gates
blow out around 70.

On the other hand, many mosfet power ratings are absurd fantasies. IR
pioneered lying about that, and everyone else had to go along.

Why do (cheap? expensive ones may be better) PC ATX power supplies need

I have a PC with 3 graphics cards running scientific applications. I
acquired three old graphics cards that take about 300W each, and have
loads of cheap (CIT) PSUs that are rated at 650W on the 12V line, which
is what those cards use. So I run each card off its own supply. But
the 12V line at no load, or even at 300W, is only giving out 10 to
10.5V. If I attach a small dummy load of an amp or so to the 5V line,
the 12V line suddenly becomes 12V.

Why are the two lines related in any way?

Sorry for the crosspost, I'm not sure which of these groups are active.

A lot of cheap supplies regulate only one output, and rely on
cross-regulation via the transformer to control the others. If the
regulated output isn't loaded, it rises out of spec and so do the others.

Strangely, with no 5V load, I get 5.2V and 10.5V. A small rise and a large drop.

I can't understand why the following happens: No 5V load, 12V is out. Small (2A) 5V load, 12V is ok. Yet if I draw 30A from 5V, the 12V is still ok? How can zero load upset it, but 2A or 30A (big difference) both be ok?

The difference between nothing and 2A is a factor of infinity
The difference between 2A and 20A is only a factor of 10

Actually the fisrt is more like the difference betweem 2mA and 2A
because the internal feedback takes avout 2mA to run the LM431 and the
optocoupler. So going to 2A loads the 5V output by 1000 times more, better
than infinity. but not by much.

If it's going to be so shit, they could have added a dummy load inside the PSU to make it work properly. They could even have it shut off if there was enough external load.

Diode voltage drop is logarythmic vs current so the voltage on the transformer
needed to make 5V on the output is less with a 2mA load than it is with
a 2A load.
That is absolutely stupid. A dummy load wastes power, it generates extra heat and the heat shortens the equipment's life. Those are dedicated power supplies, not bench or lab supplies. They were designed to operate with a minimum load. If you don't like it, go to a four or five output supply with trimmers to calibrate each output. Be prepared to pay $250 to $400 for one.

You bitch about only getting 650 Watts output. Read the specifications. that 850W maximum is fully loading all outputs at the same time. Do yourself a favor and take some basic Electronics classes.

because all the output voltages come from taps on the same transformer
and the voltage regulation is applied to the input to that transformer
and the voltage regulation only watches the 5V line.

Ok, but why does current need to be taken from 5V to make the voltage monitor work?

It is designed to be in a computer, and there's always some load on
the 5 V line. It probably didn't seem terribly important to worry
about a high voltage condition where none should ever exist.

Some power supplies sit and oscillate if they don't have a load on the
5 volt line...

I notice my desktop has 5v present on the USB connector even when it
is turned off, turned on, or just in standby. I suspect it may have a
small independent supply to run the USB connectors for power, and
perhaps that also supplies the CMOS memory so the clock and settings
don't drain the battery.
Look at the ATX Power Supply specifications. It should be on the Intel website for free.

There is a +5VSB output, (5 volt standby output) which is a low power switcher to provide power for the electronic power switch. Some computers power the USB port at all times, while others like this Dell Optiplex 780 shuts it down if the computer isn't active.

There's often a good reason for it. The 5 volt supply is regulated
and the others are not (generally speaking). The feedback path is
from the 5VDC output back to the mains side of the controller.

The others get line (but not load) regulation via the 5V supply
because they share a common transformer. They are also switching
supplies that work at a high frequency so the transformers have fewer
turns of wire and more volts per turn which results in excellent
transformer "regulation."

So on a cheap shit supply, the 5V is guaranteed to be very close to 5V, but the 12V will drop under heavy load?
And on a decent supply like Corsair, they must regulate both seperately?
I still don't understand why the regulation goes to pot when under 1.5A is taken from 5V. It still regulates that 5V perfectly with no load, but the 12V goes wildly wrong. Why does the regulation need current to be flowing through 5V?
I didn't read all the answers, so maybe someone said this,
but some SMPS (switch mode PS) topologies have a minimum current.
(Mostly related to keeping current in the inductor.. you could
look up the difference between continuous and discontinuous
conduction modes.

A decent supply made by Corsair lets you take the full 850W from the 12V line. The designers of this supply are morons.

In a supply which powers a computer, where currents change all the time on different voltages, this is a very bad design. I guess I just buy the better ones in future.

Only the CPUs, high-density LSI and some RAM use those low voltages; it's a scaling thing.

It's on the label on the side, but it's sold as an 850W supply, which it isn't, so they're lying. It's like selling a car which can go 150mph, but only downhill. Technically yes, it can go 150, but not in a useful way.
