Push Pull Amplifier Circuit, Operation, Advantages and Disadvantages

Push pull amplifier image

A push-pull amplifier is a type of amplifier that can drive a current in either direction through the load. In terms of distortion and performance, push-pull amplifiers are more efficient than single ended amplifier because of its push-pull arrangement. Into this arrangement, one transistor amplifies the positive half cycle whereas the other transistor amplifies the negative half cycle of the signal i.e. whole signal is amplified at the output. The output stage of a typical push-pull amplifier comprises of two identical BJT’s or Mosfet’s i.e one source current through the load while another sink current from the load. In our previous articles, we explain Read More …

Class A Power Amplifier Theory, Efficiency equation, Advantages and Disadvantages

class a power amplifiers image

Class A power amplifier is one of the simplest types of power amplifier have high fidelity and totally immune to crossover distortion. In the standard common emitter circuit configuration, class A amplifier uses the switching transistor.  The transistor is always turned ON so that the output current flows for the entire cycle of the input waveform. To control the high load current, class A amplifier may use a single power transistor or a pair of a transistor connected together. In our previous article, we explain power amplifier circuit,  semiconductors, diodes, rectifiers in detail. Here we are going to explain Class A Read More …

Power Amplifier Circuit, Classes and its Characteristics

Power amplifier image

A Power amplifier is a type of amplifier used to increase the amplitude of the signal and makes it stronger than the given input signal. It  is the most demandable electronic device in the eyes of professional because it comes in various forms and used in a number of circuits. The main operating characteristics of an ideal amplifier is power output, signal gain, efficiency and linearity but normally there is always remain some trade-off between these characteristics. As we know not all amplifiers provide an accurate output, and there is always cost factor to consider. In our previous article, we Read More …

Power Amplifier Definition, Properties and Classifications

Power amplifers

A Power amplifier is an electronic device which provides sufficient power to an output load to drive a speaker or other power device, typically a few watts to tens of watts. The main purpose of this amplifier is to raise the power level of the input signal, to get the large power at the output. To match the input signal shape with larger amplitude, power amplifier takes the energy from the power supply & controls the output. In our previous article, we explain Amplifiers, Transistors, diodes, rectifiers in detail. In this article, we are going to explain Power amplifier working, performance Read More …

Bridge Rectifier Circuit, Operation, Characteristics & Advantages

bridge rectifier image

Full wave bridge rectifier is another type of full wave rectifier used to convert an alternating current input into a direct current output. In a bridge circuit configuration, it comprises of four diodes that provide the same polarity of output for either polarity of the input. The main feature of this diode bridge which makes it more efficient than centre tap rectifier is its polarity i.e. the polarity of output is same as that of input. In our previous articles, we explain rectifier, half wave rectifier, Efficiency equation of half wave rectifier, efficiency equation of full wave rectifier etc. In Read More …

Full wave Rectifier Efficiency Equation and Applications

Full wave rectifier basically uses both half cycles of the applied AC voltage and converts an AC voltage into a pulsating DC voltage. In full wave rectification, one diode conducts during one half-cycle while other conducts during the other half cycle of the applied AC voltage. It has some advantages over half wave rectifier like it has high average output DC voltage and has much fewer ripples resulting in the smoother output waveform. In our previous article, we explain Rectifier, half wave rectifier efficiency, diodes, p-n junction etc in detail. In this article, we are going to explain the mathematical Read More …
