The Working of Circuits
The simple power supply use base components are Zener diode, Resistors, and capacitors. It performs the equipment to maintain stable voltage or regulated.
They consists of step-down transformer T1, rectifier bridge (D1,D2,D3,D4) and a filtering regulator circuit made up of C1,C2,C3,C4,C4,C5,R1,R2,R3,ZD1, and ZD2. When AC-line is applied to the transformer T1 changes 220VAC to about 48VAC in center tap(CT). Then, the rectifier bridge rectifies the AC into pulsating DC. Next, the DC current is filtered by C1, C2, which both capacitors acts as a storage capacitor or filter to smooth DC.
Now voltage at this point is +35V,-35V(for main power amplifier)
Then, the DC unregulated flow to R1, R2 to ZD1, ZD2. They provide a reference voltage at the output can have voltage get +15V, -15V (for pre-amplifier circuit) and some current flow to R3 reduce the voltage to 12V for pre-mic circuit
The detail is other see in the circuit.

Amplifier power supply using High Current Transformer
This is an amplifier power supply circuit. We have a good idea to solve there is not enough the electric current. In this circuit connected much high power transformer with the parallel circuit so cause we have the output current higher than normal power supply circuit.
The Working of Circuit
The transformer has many coils. We can bring to do high Current power supply circuit well. By if all coil has Voltage be equal. It is can bring parallel can follow this circuit is coil lead that has Voltage 24V and has Current about 1A come to parallel prevent all 2 the group has current altogether each 2A groups by having voltage at 24V be the same.
This circuit then can become Dual power supply at 34V positive and -34V Negative and Ground. This circuit uses to are amplifier power supply get good. Suppose will give the electric power about 50watt.
For the diode use 3A 100V sizes. And use the Stancor (a type of inductor) filter noise signal the all well. This circuit may help to give testimony have the idea in applying work other.
