Full-Wave Rectifiers

• Full-Wave bridge rectifier uses four diodes

• Two diodes are forward and two are reverse biased at a time

Full-Wave Rectifiers

• During positive cycle

• During negative cycle

Power Supply

• Rectifier converts ac voltage into fluctuating dc voltage

• Filter reduces the fluctuations and produces a relatively smooth output

• Regulators maintain a constant dc voltage for the variations in input voltage or variations in load

docsity.com

Filters

• The filter removes the voltage variations at the output of a rectifier

• Filter is a capacitor connected to ground

• Fluctuations at the output of the filter are called ripples

Filters

• Ripple Voltage The variation of capacitor voltage due to charging and discharging is called the ripple voltage

• Full wave rectifiers are

easier to filter because

shorter time between

peaks

Filters

• Ripple Factor

Ripple Factor (r) is the ratio of peak to peak ripple voltage to the average value of filter’s output

Small ripple factor indicates effective filtering
