Hello to all.
I am building another power supply and have a question.
In a voltage doubler does the rating on the transformers current decrease by 1/2??? If yes, then I assume the bridge would not

When using a voltage doubler the rating of the transformer does not decrease HOWEVER the amount of current you can draw decreases by 50%. This is a function of the voltage doubler and not the transformer.
