Understanding power supply ratings

Electrical Engineering Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for electronics and electrical engineering professionals, students, and enthusiasts.
I guess maybe the designer has put these resistors (R2 & R5) as a damper for possible resonant oscillations in the rectifier output pi filter that C5, L1 and C2 form. If you want to understand the circuit, it'll help a great deal to redraw it with the major internal components and building blocks of U1, and not sticking to the IC's pinout when drawing the schematic. The circuit shown is a common one when used in balanced form but much less common when used unbalanced as you show here. They appear to have cut corners by using an unbalanced "Pi filter" and the added the bead to try to achieve emission standards.
NO filtering - but has series string VCC fed with divided cap to get voltage rating for startup with winding fed takeover.

How do I find out whether my switched-mode power supply is galvanically separated from mains? Powering multiple DC gadget(Routers, switches, RPis etc) using a single smps will be efficient than multiple power supply? Is it ethical for an Employer to use personal(financial) information in negotiating salary? What can I do to prevent my air conditioner from smelling moldy as the temperatures begin to rise? The 470 nF capacitor: is it a decoupling capacitor, which filters a possible DC signal from the power line? The 500 ohms resistor in series with the capacitor mentioned just before… Is it a simple current limiter? From the simulations, I've learned that this capacitor and resistor in series are exposed to great voltages. The 470nF capacitor: is the component that charges energy from the positive cycle of the power grid to discharge it on the negative cycle. The Zener diode: works as a voltage regulator, keeping the voltage on, approximately, 5 Volts.
The 500 ohms resistor before the Zener diode: creates a voltage difference between the 470uF capacitor and the Zener diode when the loaded tension on the capacitor is greater than the one the zener diode is holding (approximately 5 Volts).
The 470nF capacitor and 500Ω present a set impedance to the mains voltage and limit the current.
The rest of the components are to rectify and regulate the voltage, in order to present a steady low voltage DC supply for the IC. So the whole process looks like this (ignore diode part numbers, LTSpice doesn't have any 1N4002 or similar.

The 0.1uF capacitors are indeed bypass capacitors, these present a local energy storage for high frequency current demand. Combined with the caps, The 10Ω resistor is to decouple the analog and digital supplies to some extent.

Is it possible to know how much the cake weighs using a specific size of cake pan before baking? After publishing my manuscript in a relatively new journal can I then withdraw it and publish the same manuscript at a different journal?

Some of us like technician want to learn more about the Switch Mode Power Supply commonly called SMPS. A switched-mode power supply (switching-mode power supply, SMPS, or switcher) is an electronic power supply that incorporates a switching regulator to convert electrical power efficiently. This type of power supply is commonly used on television sets and DVD players and now some component sytem like the Sony already uses this type of power supply to their electronics products. Th inductor impedance equals resistor impedance at very roughly the 1MHz range, limiting the filter Q at very high frequencies.
By showing what people do in a range of supplies you gt a feel for how useful a given cct is liable to be.
My guess is yes, it is, and its function is to limit the current from the negative cycle of the power line.

The capacitor, for instance, is exposed to tensions up to 295 Volts (the power grid I'm on is 220 Volts RMS). The second one's purpose is to prevent the power grid to drain energy stored on the 470nF capacitor when the power grid is on the negative cycle. There are capacitors called "X capacitors" that are specially certified for use with mains. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a shipping method to your location.

This is a special type of power that uses a chopper transformer instead of an ordinary metal core transformer.
Like other power supplies, an SMPS transfers power from a source, like mains power, to a load, such as a personal computer, while converting voltage and current characteristics.
Once C3 and C6 are charged, U1 is able to start and from there, D6 provides the auxiliary power to C3 and C6 and for U1. But before proceeding to some other part of the circuit I want to understand what every component is there for. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. We have to learn how this type of power supply works for us to  have knowledge on how to repair this switch mode power supply  if we will encounters problem related to power supply. An SMPS is usually employed to efficiently provide a regulated output voltage, typically at a level different from the input voltage.A switched-mode power supply (switching-mode power supply, SMPS, or switcher) is an electronic power supply that incorporates a switching regulator to convert electrical power efficiently. One way for the noise to leave the device is from right to left, via the rectifier towards the input, and the filter is right in this path. R2 and R5 do not act as a filter (as long as you don't get too theoretical and call R2+R5 and C3+C6 a low pass RC filter, which would of course be true but not very practical).
Actually, there even is a resistor to dampen the filter, but this is the one they've put parallel to L1 (R10).
