The Rectifier is an electronic device, which converts an AC waveform(Usually a Bi-directional waveform with Zero Average value) to a Pulsating DC waveform (Uni-directional waveform with Nonzero Average value). As AC wave (Sinusoidal) has two half cycles, namely - Positive Half cycle & Negative Half cycle If a Rectifier does it's operation only in one half of the cycles, it is known as Half Wave Rectifier. Similarly, If a Rectifier does it's operation in both the half cycles, it is known as Full Wave Rectifier.
Thanks for the feedback!

What is a 'rectifier'?

1. One that rectifies: a rectifier of many wrongs. 2. Electronics. A device, such as a diode, that converts alternating current to direct current. 3. A worker who blends o

What is rectifying?

Rectifying is correcting or solving a problem. For example if your car engine was broken, you would take it to a garage to rectify the the problem.

What is the function of capacitor in full-wave rectifier?

is a device that smoothen your half-wave rectification into a full-wave rectification after using a 4 diode and 1 resistor , after adding a capacitor , there will be a almost

What is function of rectifier?

usually to convert AC to DC.

What is the function of capacitor in full wave rectifier with smoothing capacitor circuit?

is a device that smoothen your half-wave rectification into a full-wave rectification after using a 4 diode and 1 resistor , after adding a capacitor , there will be a almost

What is the functioning procedure of full wave rectifier?

Imagine a sine wave. It is a wave that has both a positive and negative component that varies continuously over time. For most power applications in the USA this rate is 60 he

What is the function of a capacitor and resistor in a bridge rectifier circuit?

The capacitor follows the rectifier to smooth the DC output. It has  a safety resistor in parallel to discharge it safely when it is  turned off. The resistor value can be c
