Middle East Technical University - NCC EEE202 - Circuits Theory II Laboratory 1 EXPERIMENT 5 RECTIFIERS WITH SEMICONDUCTOR JUNCTION AND ZENER DIODES Abstract The characteristics of rectifiers using PN junction and Zener diodes are investigated. Prework on PN Rectifiers 1. Study full wave and half wave rectifiers. a. Find the dc (average) value of a half-wave rectified sinusoid. b. Repeat Part (a) for a full-wave rectified sinusoid, show the derivation steps. CHAPTER 3 of Microelectronic Circuits by SEDRA and SMITH may be HELPFUL 2. Consider two rectifier topologies: a. Consider the half-wave rectifier circuit with a capacitive load and its output given in Fig. 1 for v i (t) = 10 sin (200 t) volts . Figure 1 Assume that the diode is ideal and C = 100 F . It is desired that the peak to peak ripple voltage V r to be less than 1% of the peak output voltage, determine what should be the value of R. (Extra information for this calculation is given at next page.) Using PSpice simulate v o (t) and compute V dc which can be approximated as V dc V V r /2. Do one more simulation for the case that the capacitor is removed. C R v o (t) v i (t) V t t 1 t 2 t 1 +T V r 0 0

Middle East Technical University - NCC EEE202 - Circuits Theory II Laboratory 2 Extra information: If the time constant is much larger than T, then t 2 t 1 T and since 𝑉 ? (? 2 ) = 𝑉 ∙ ? (𝑡 2 −𝑡 1 ) 𝜏 = 𝑉 ∙ [1 − ? 2 − ? 1 𝜏 + (? 2 − ? 1 ) 2 2! ∙ 𝜏 (? 2 − ? 1 ) 2 3! ∙ 𝜏 … ] It is approximately: 𝑉 ? (? 2 ) ≅ 𝑉 ∙ (1 − 𝑇 𝜏 ) Hence; 𝑉? 𝑉 1 ?𝑅𝐶 b. Repeat Part (a) for the full-wave bridge rectifier circuit with a capacitive load given in Fig. 2. Again assume that the diodes are ideal. (Note that this time V r /V 1/2fRC).

### What students are saying

• 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.
