      ​@Ara CoinThank you for agreeing with my subconscious! I don't know much but I was starting to think I knew even less than I think I do. . . Fuck Descartes!

    • Irrationally Mad Physicist
      Irrationally Mad Physicist Year ago +2

      @Ara Coin linear power supply just means there is no switching involved, linus' part is still correct and imo the most understandable, all it is missing in practice is a simple voltage regulator like a 7812 but the more important part for the big picture is the bridge and transformer.
      an important characteristic for the efficiency of SMPS is that they can change the period for which the input to the flyback is on, connecting it to mains for longer for a heavier load and relaxing the mains when the load decreases, with the decision being made using feedback from the output, kinda irked me that they found the time to mention varistors but not the defining characteristic of a switched mode power supply. if you gonna be a know it all smartass, do it to a college professor or something, not in a general audience basics video.

    That "60 plus turd" power efficiency rating actually made me laugh 😂

    • The Gambler
      The Gambler 12 days ago

      @Paul Frederick At high-loads, the rectifier caps suddenly need to charge quickly which induces charging losses on the caps - the caps have internal resistance and thus high charge/discharge currents waste power. Hence the need for PFC correction - it's easier to frequently top off a cap slowly than to charge it quickly occasionally.

    • Paul Frederick
      Paul Frederick Year ago

      An unregulated supply should be much more efficient than 60. Where precisely are the losses? When you use a linear regulator those are inefficient. But that's not the circuit he was showing.

    • Anivia
      Anivia 22 days ago

      @papercut except this specific capacitor doesn't save energy in an electric field. It's an electrolytic capacitor so it's more similar to a battery in that it stores its energy chemically. It just has a way smaller internal resistance than a regular battery, making it behave similar to a capacitor. That's why electrolytic capacitors have polarity and regular capacitors don't

    Great execution!
    When I read the title and started the video I was preparing myself to close it after a minute because such a topic can be incredibly boring if not well presented.
    Switching the host throughout the video, with clear topic separation, and without hectic cuts, gave the video a pleasant flow.
    Probably takes a bit of courage to post "such" an educational video in the current YT environment so thanks for the well-executed, effort
    and for fulfilling your guy's influencers' task to also educate.

    • Ara Coin

      Yes, switching hosts helps... Linus's part had horrible mistakes, Alex's was almost perfect, and last part was bullshit.

    Hearing power factor correction took me back to my EE clg days. Used to have a tough time understanding why the hell they are not in sync. Understanding the full operation of power supply might need one to have master degree. Great job in explaining the basic concepts so easily.

  • David Gunther

      I want to know why an unregulated supply is only 60% efficient. Where precisely are those losses occurring? Now a regulated linear supply is inefficient. But that's not what was shown.

    DiodeGoneWild has done a *really* good video on analyzing an ATX power supply that everyone should check out. His channel is pretty good in general :)

    Thank you LTT, I was planning to replace my power supply soon from whatever Asus stuck in my pre-built, to something decent. I did wonder whether I could re-use the cables. So now I know and I won’t be making that mistake.
