12/07/18 Chapter 1 : AC Meters 17 A general rectifier type ac voltmeter arrangement that use in half-wave rectification have additional diode and shunt resistor as shown in Figure 3.4. The additional diode D2 is reverse-biased on the positive half-cycle and has virtually no effect on the behavior of the circuit. In the negative half-cycle, D2 is forward-biased and provides an alternate path for reverse biased leakage current that would normally flow through the meter movement and diode D1. The purpose of R sh is to increase the current flow through D1 during the positive half cycle so that the diode is operating in a more linear portion of its characteristic curve. Cont’d…

12/07/18 Chapter 1 : AC Meters 22 Has the same basic operating principle as the D’Arsonval meter movement, except that the permanent magnet is replaced by fixed coils. The moving coil and pointer, which are attached to the coil, are suspended between and connected in series with the two field coils (fix coil). The two field coils and moving coil are connected in series such that the same current flows through each coil. Current flow through the three coils in either direction causes a magnetic field to be produced between the field coils. The same current flow through the moving coil causes it to act as a magnet exerting a force against the spring Cont’d…

If the current is reversed, the field polarity and the polarity of the moving coil reverse, and the force continues in the same direction.

    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.
