Joshua Dean Berk Bozoklar Experiment 2: Solid State Diodes Applications 1 January 26, 2011 The George Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Science ECE 2115 Engineering Electronics Lab Section 31 Mazdak Taghioskouei Introduction The objective of this experiment was to analyze the properties of various circuits by implementing the use of a transformer and diodes. The main circuits tested were: a half-wave rectifier, a full wave rectifier, and a bridge rectifier circuit. The DMM and Digital Oscilloscope were used in order to observe the output characteristics of the circuits. Background Information Characteristic Value + unit Convert any RMS values to V P , then V PP Primary Voltage 115Vrms V P =162.61V V PP =325.22V Frequency 60Hz Secondary Voltage 18Vrms V P = 25.452V V PP =50.904V Secondary Current Limit 1.5A n/a Calculate Power Limit (secondary V*I limit) 38.178W n/a Calculate turn ratio (N P /N S ) 6.389 n/a Table 1- Transformer Specifications

### 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.
