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 …

Full wave rectifier is a type of rectifier which converts alternating current voltage into pulsating direct current voltage during both half cycles of applied input voltage. This rectifier acts a heart of circuitry which allows the sensors to attach to the RCX in either polarity. In our previous articles, we explain half wave rectifier circuit, Rectifier efficiency equation, diode, semiconductors, diode types in detail. In this article, we are going to explain full wave rectifier circuit, working, operation in detail. In this rectifier, full wave rectification can be achieved by using two crystal diodes which conduct  current alternatively. During positive Read More …
