Half Wave Rectifier The diode only conducts when it is forward biased, therefore only half of the AC cycle passes through the diode to the output. The DC output voltage is 0.318 V m , where V m = the peak AC voltage .

cont... So far this rectifier is not very useful. Even though the output does not change polarity it has a lot of ripple. “The variation in the capacitor voltage due to charging and discharging is called the ripple voltage”. To generate an output voltage that more closely resembles a true d.c. voltage we can use a reservoir or smoothing capacitor in parallel with the output (load) resistance (prev slide fig b).
Ripple Effect...

Ripple Effect... For a given input frequency, the output frequency of a full wave rectifier is twice that of a half wave rectifier. As a result, a full wave rectifier is easier to filter because of the shorter time between peaks.

Smoothed Half Wave Rectifier Circuit with reservoir capacitor Output voltage The capacitor charges over the period t 1 to t2 when the diode is on and discharges from t2 to t3 when the diode is off.
Smoothed Half Wave Rectifier When the supply voltage exceeds the output voltage the (ideal) diode conducts. During the charging period (t 1 < t< t 2 ) v o = V M sin ( t) (The resistance in the charging circuit is strictly R f which we have assumed to be zero. Even for a practical diode R f C will be very small)

### 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.
