To make your own power supply you must have three key components: a transformer, bridge rectifier, and filter capacitor. The transformer’s current rating must be sufficient to adequately run all motors that will be run from it using the above current formula. The DC output voltage will be 1.4 times the transformer’s AC voltage rating of the secondary. For example, a 24VAC transformer secondary will provide about 34VDC at the output of the supply. The bridge rectifier’s voltage and current ratings must exceed what the supply will deliver. Finally the minimum filter capacitor size must be calculated.
If more than one drive is being operated from the power supply this is not a problem since the other drive(s) will absorb this current for its needs, unless it is decelerating as well. For this case or for a single drive it may be necessary to place a voltage clamp across the power supply in the form of a Zener diode. The voltage of this diode must be greater than the maximum expected power supply voltage, yet low enough to protect the drive. A good choice would be either 82 volts or 91 volts as standard values.
