* VS is the input for this circuit.  Say, it has a phasor amplitude of 1 volt in
* the F-domain and a sine waveform in the time domain, of 120 volt at 60 Hz.
* The following combination, independent, voltage source statement
* gives both the F and T domain specification.

    Please advice with price for RS Full Wave Rectifire to attach with the newly created generator for control the current Thanks.
    Kind Regards.

    • I am not sure exactly what you are asking me for, but please do note of the following:

      1. Rs or RS is supply resistance and it is a function of the power supply. You could look at it as the output impedance of the power supply. The reason for using Rs in simulation file is because Pspice software would not let you to simulate an ideal independent power source. To achieve a close simulation results with the real thing, then you need to measure the output impedance of power supply or look for the value in the datasheet of the power supply, assuming you are using a third part power supply.

      2. If you want to hookup a third party full wave rectifier to your new generator, then you just have to look for a power supply adapter that would feed out the proper voltage and current into your generator. here is a link of a website that I use to buy things from:

      Lets assume that your generator requires 5V and 0.5A, then I would chose a power supply of 5V and 1A. using the above link and you get the following:

      hopefully this would answer your question.
