Advice 1: How to increase the capacity of the power supply

Usually computer produced with defined technical data. But in the process there is a need to increase capacity some settings. High performance computer depends on unit power. At this point in time many began to wonder about the increasing power of the unit power supply. To do this operation, you need to follow certain rules.
How to increase the capacity of the power supply
You will need
  • PC power supply
Instruction
1
In order to increase the capacity of unit power, you need to open it.
2
Next you need to estimate the size of the transformer. If they make "is 3ґ3ґ3 cell" cm and above, then you can begin to finalize.
3
First, replace the high voltage capacitors. It is advisable to put no less than 470мкфх200В. Chokes are placed only in the low-voltage part of the unit power supply. They are made in several ways.
4
You can try to wind on a ferrite ring wire with varnish insulation. Some people remove the chokes from old blocks of power.
5
Smoothing capacitors raspalaut in the empty space in the low-voltage side. Stop and three capacitors 2200мкфх16В.
6
Need to replace the diode Assembly. It is advisable to put 2 or 3 builds MOSPEC S30D40, or something similar. All this is bought in stores.
7
In block power there are channels such as +5V and +12V. Inflated the voltage of the second channel(+12) harmful to your computer. To reduce this figure should be in the yellow breaks actuators to solder quite a powerful diode. The voltage is reduced by 0.6 In that It will protect your computer.
8
The result of this work it turns out it is a normal unit power. It will work perfectly for many years. With a powerful new bloc of power you will get high performance results.

Advice 2: How to find out power transformer

Power and other characteristics of the transformer are indicated on the information plate affixed by the manufacturer on each device. But what if this label has worn off or lost? When an unknown type of transformer and its parameters, you can define them using the avometr and simple calculations.
How to find out power transformer
You will need
  • - avometr (multimeter);
  • - power source;
  • - thin wire;
  • - a knife, a sewing needle;
  • calculator
Instruction
1
Using a multimeter (avometr) determine the location of the conclusions of the windings of the transformer and measure their resistance. The primary winding consider one that has the greatest resistance. This is the easiest way to determine the primary winding.
2
If the tested transformer over two winding as the primary, first take any coil with a low resistance. Apply a low AC voltage (e.g. 10 volts) using any power source. Spend the measurements of voltage on all windings. The results of the measurements determine the real primary winding of the transformer. Test yourself by repeating the measurements when applying more voltage to the coils.
3
Then, observing air gap between coil and the yoke over the windings wrap the thin wire, thus creating another winding. The more turns of wire is wound, the higher the accuracy of the final results. If the transformer is no space for another coil, use part of the existing outer winding. To do this, carefully remove the outer insulation layer of the coil to obtain free access to the latest available winding layer.
4
Find the end of the opened coil and count from it any number of turns. Remember that this is the number of turns directly affect the results of the calculations. The last turn carefully remove part of the enamel. Preparing the multimeter, one output tap of the naked coil winding, using a sewing needle. Applied voltage to the primary winding, measure the voltage at your coil or coils counted.
5
Calculate the number of turns in each winding. To do this, the voltage at the investigated winding multiply by the number of turns made by yourself or counted on the last layer. The result divide by the voltages applied to the studied coil.
6
After counting the number of turns in all of the regular transformer windings, calculate the cross-sectional area of the magnetic circuit. For this purpose, the voltage across the primary winding and multiply by 50 and divide by the number of turns of the coil. The result will be an area of core magnetic circuit, expressed in square centimeters.
7
To calculate the power of transformer, the resulting cross-sectional area of the magnetic core construct in the square and divide by 1.3. The result will show the capacity of the device in watts.
