Bridge Rectifier Circuit, Operation, Characteristics & Advantages

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 …

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 …

Full Wave Rectifier Circuit, Characteristics, Advantages & Disadvantages

In this chapter, we are going to learn about second type of rectifier that is full wave rectifier. Unlike half wave, full wave rectifier is mostly used. We have already discussed rectifier and half wave rectifier in our previous tutorials. From them, we got to know that there is a vast difference between the characteristics and efficiency of different rectifiers. Now we will learn the types and characteristics of full wave rectifier. Full Wave Rectifier Full wave rectifier can be defined as “a type of rectifier that converts the alternating voltage into pulsating direct voltage but unlike half wave rectifier, …

Half Wave Rectifier Efficiency Equation and Applications

This is third chapter in Rectifier series. In the last two chapters we have covered the basics of rectifiers, and Half wave rectifier. Though we have covered various properties in our last article but kept aside a mathematical derivation of half wave rectifier efficiency equation. Because we think it needs to be explained separately. In this article, we are going to learn to calculate the equation of efficiency of half wave rectifier and about its various applications in detail. Before learning ahead, let’s have a little recap about the working of a half-wave rectifier. In Half wave rectifier, the diode …

Half wave Rectifier Circuit, working, operation and characteristics

We have covered the basics of Rectifier and its types in our previous article. Now we will learn about each type of rectifier individually. In this article, we will cover all about half wave rectifier. As we have read that there are mainly three types of rectifiers, namely half wave, full wave, and center tapped. This classification is done keeping in mind whether it uses full AC voltage waveform or half. Keep this point in mind while going through the rest of the article. What is Half Wave Rectifier? Half Wave Rectifier Definition can be given as: A Half wave …

Rectifiers Basics, Types and Comparison

A rectifier or AC to DC Converter is one of the most important devices when we talk about Electricity. It is used to convert one form of the current into another. And because of it, we have electricity in our house. So, in this chapter, we will cover rectifier definition, uses, the process of rectification, circuit and types. What is a Rectifier A rectifier is an electrical device that consists of one or more diodes allowing the flow of current only in one direction. It basically converts an alternating current into direct current. The process of converting Alternating Current into …

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

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 …

Power Amplifier Definition, Properties and Classifications

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 …
