enough regulation for low current requirements. The transformer steps down the AC mains voltage to 15 volts and 1N4401 diodes bridge rectifies these voltages. A 250uF capacitor is used for filtering and 150 ohms resistors are used for limiting the current. The two 12 volt 1 watt zener diodes are used to perform the voltage regulation task.
