KING FAHD UNIVERSITY OF PETROLEUM AND MINERALS University Diploma Programs PHYS 012: Solid State Physics Preparatory Classroom Building, Portable # 10 Hussein Tawfiq Magharbi (Office: 14/214, Tel: 4010) E-mail: [email protected] Lab Experiment # 03 NAME: ___________________________________________ ID: ___________________ ================================================================== 1. Rectification is the process of converting an AC to DC current. In the last three experiments, you have examined three rectifier circuits; namely: Half-Wave, Center- Taped Full-Wave, and Bridge Full-Wave rectifier circuits. Though the output of all of these circuits is a DC current, but its amplitude fluctuates, i.e., it does not change direction but amplitude changes. In order to smooth the rectified output voltage, a filter is needed. An electric filter is a Capacitor-Resistor circuit that stores voltage when the rectified DC voltage is high and discharges the stored voltage when the rectified DC is
