LABORATORY 13 – Rectifier Circuits Lab Goals In this lab you will learn about the operation of diodes, and characterize half-wave and full- wave rectifier circuits both with and without filtering. You will also learn about Zener diodes and design, construct, and test a simple regulated “power supply.”
