Abstract: This experiment is based around the principles and applications of the AC transformer and the use of a rectifier. The rectifier circuit can be built many different ways with somewhat of the same output characteristics. With the amount of design types of these rectifiers, the applications are almost endless for these designs. The addition of filter capacitors to these rectifier circuits further enhances the accuracy of readings and puts an end to tribulations occurring when exact results are needed. To name a few, the half-wave, full-wave, bridge, and center tap. The basic rectifier circuit will not create that best signal for use as DC voltage. This will contain ripple and will require a filter to smooth it out.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
