Default Re: Rectifier Electrical / Electronic Question

I ran a quick simulation of the autotransformer idea, and your initial hunch is correct.

With the V1 source at 60 Vrms (84 V peak) we see a load voltage of 25 VDC average (28 Vrms). The current in each winding of the autotransformer is 14 Arms, as is the current supplied by the V1 source.

I don't have a handy model for a battery, but hanging a large capacitor across R1 is gonna make the RMS current go sky high, I'm pretty sure...
