The only thing I can see wrong with your answer is that you top
Actually, using a capacitor as a reactive voltage dropper is one of
my favorite ways to do it precisely because of the heat that _isn't_
generated. There was a lively thread (vreg input cap size) here a
couple of weeks ago about just that subject. You may want to check
it out on google if your news server no longer has it on.
Here's how I'd do it:
| | | | | |
24AC>--------|~ -|--+ [CR1] [C2] | [C3]
+----+ | | | | |
Where CR1 is a Zener used to keep the input to the 7809 from going
past the input limit if the load goes away.
