.11. A half-wave rectifier using silicon diode has a secondary emf of 14.14 V (rms) with a resistance of 0.2 Ω. The diode has a forward resistance of 0.05 Ω and a threshold voltage of 0.7 V. If load resistance is 10 Ω, determine the following: to start with I need to find the Vm which is14.14*2= 28.8 ◦dc load current20-0.7/10.25= 0.6A◦dc load voltage 6V◦voltage regulation 28.28-27.58/27.58 *100= 2.5%◦circuit efficiency 8.78/14.14= 62% CORRECT ANSWER IS
