Diode tutorial and AC to DC conversion

This video covers the basics of diodes, bridge rectifiers, and how to build simple unregulated AC to DC power supplies than can handle a few mA up to several Amps. I recommend watching my transformer tutorial first if you are confused about where I am getting the AC voltages from. The voltage regulator tutorial is the next part in the trilogy of how to build a stable power supply.
