Half wave Rectifier Circuit, working, operation and characteristics

Half-wave rectifier image

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 …
