The rectification of the mains voltage and the downstream filtering

produces a DC voltage which is used as the supply voltage for the parts and components of an electronic circuit. This filtered DC voltage is still superimposed by a more or less small residual voltage. The superimposed residual voltage is the ripple. It depends on the filter circuit and the current

drawn. The ripple increases withhigher current consumption and decreases with lower current consumption. Ripple also refers to the overshoot and undershoot


that occurs directly after steep pulse edges on the pulse roofs and pulse floors. The term ripple is also used for a cryptocurrency.
