This is a simple AC TRIAC dimmer circuit. You can use this circuit upto 10000watt only change the Triac of this circuit. If the TRIAC is a high temperature. It should be held with a large heat sink. With The help of this article you can make High Wattage Dimmer Switch Circuit at Home.

How This Ac Dimmer Circuit Works

The DIAC(Diode AC bi-directional switch) is a kind of diode. It switches AC voltage or trigger to a gate of the TRIAC. Adjust  VR to Adjust the speed or Brightness of Load.

We know the AC main is the Sine waveform. Use Triac is an electronics switch. It works very fast in AC. If we feed a different waveform in the gate of Triac. We can control it easily.

And Capacitors and resistors are basic components to change the waveform of AC.
