Best Answer

A bridge rectifier, is a group of rectifiers (4 in a single phase) wired so that each half of an AC current is passed to respective positive and negative lines of a DC output.

It provides full wave rectification of AC into DC.

What are the disadvantages of bridge rectifier to center tap rectifier?

In bridge rectifier,two of the diodes are forward biased(i.e conducting current) at a time while in centre tapped rectifier 1diode is forward biased at a time.So,the flaw in bridge rectifier is that voltage loss is more in bridge rectifier than in centre tapped rectifier. e.g:for silicon diode loss=-0.7v (for centre tapp) loss=2*0.7=1.4v (for bridge)

What is an explanation of the bridge rectifier?

A bridge rectifier refers to a diode bridge of 4 diodes in a bridge configuration that provides some polarity of the output for either the polarity of the input or output.
