## Ripple factor and Efficiency of rectifier

Ripple factor The ratio of the RMS value (root mean square) of the AC component to the DC component of the output is defined as the Ripple factor and is denoted by γ. Ripple factor, γ...

## Form factor and peak factor of rectifier

Peak factor The peak factor is defined as the ratio of the maximum value to the RMS value of an alternating quantity. Peak factor = Peak value / RMS value RMS voltage of a...

## RMS value of Rectifier

RMS (Root mean square) value is the square root of the mean value of the squared values. The RMS value of an alternating current is the equivalent DC value of an alternating or varying electrical...

## Average value of full wave and half wave rectifier

Because Average value The arithmetic average of all the instantaneous values of a signal is called as its average value.  Average value = area under curve / base Average value of a sine wave...

## Rectifier Theory & Calculation : Half wave, full wave

How to convert AC to DC? A Direct current flows only in one direction, which means it has a constant polarity across its terminals. Where an Alternating current periodically changes its direction of the current, that...
