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 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 …

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 …

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 …

Rectifiers Basics, Types and Comparison

A rectifier is an electrical device consist of one or more diodes allows the flow of current only in one direction. It basically converts alternating current into direct current. Rectifiers can be mould in several forms as per requirement like semiconductor diodes, silicon controlled rectifiers, mercury arc valves, vacuum tube diodes etc. In our previous articles, we explain diodes,  types of diodes in detail. In this article, we are going to explain rectifiers, rectifier circuits, applications etc. For signal detection and power rectification, diode rectifier circuits are widely used in electronic circuit design. These are used in various devices includes radio …
