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 …

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 …

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 name 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 …
