Half Wave Rectifier Efficiency Equation and Applications

In Half wave rectifier, the diode conducts only for positive input voltages i.e. one-half of the AC wave is removed because it cannot pass through the diode. As the┬áname indicates it rectify only half of the input wave through the phenomenon name as rectification. In our previous tutorial, we gave information about half wave rectifier circuit, Rectifier, Diodes, Diode types etc. In this article, we explain the mathematical expression of an efficiency of Half wave rectifier and its uses. Efficiency of Half wave rectifier: The ratio of DC power output to the applied input AC power is known as rectifier Read More …

Half wave Rectifier Circuit, working, operation and characteristics

Half wave rectifier is the type of rectifier that rectifies only one half cycle of the waveform i.e. either positive or negative cycle. It is nothing more than a single p-n junction diode connected in series to the load resistor. To rectify the signal these rectifiers used in the AM radios. In our last tutorial, we explain rectifier, diode, diode types in detail. In this article, we are going to explain half wave rectifier circuit, operation, characteristics and efficiency in detail. Half-wave Rectifier Theory: To understand the basic theory of half wave rectifier exactly, you must know rectifier operation, circuit Read More …
