Does a rectifier have the ability to convert DC to AC?
No. For that, you need an inverter or a generator.
By using a rectifier. A transformer cannot by itself be used to convert AC to DC, and one cannot use a transformer with DC (say a battery). A transformer requires AC so that it can induce current into the secondary windings, which then steps down (or steps up) the output AC voltage. The output AC can then be rectified into DC using diodes (or a bridge rectifier).
With the help of rectifier , Ac convert to DC. It can be done by different connections of diodes. There are two ways: 1)FULL WAVE RECTIFIER 2)HALF WAVE RECTIFIER Full wave rec. may be subdivided into two types that is ; (bridge type rectifier ,(b)Centertapped rectifier. A DC we get , is pulsating DC , which can be convert without pulsating with the help of Stabilizer and Filter. A rectifier is a device that can…
Converting D/C into A/C is very expensive. You can use inverters to switch the direction of the current but you would probably be better off to replace your DC generator with an AC generator and if you need both AC and DC power then use a rectifier (inexpensive when compared to inverters) to convert the AC to a DC current.
If you want to convert 24v AC into 12v Ac, it's simple. Just get a transformer to convert 24 volts into 12 volts. This is called a stepdown transformer. If you want to convert 24v DC into 12v DC, it's more complicated. First you have to change the 24v DC into 24v AC by a switching converter that changes DC into AC. Then you would use a stepdown transformer as in the former example. Once…
No, a transformer does not change AC to DC. For this purpose there is a device known as a rectifier, and to transform it back to AC from DC you'll need an inverter. Transformers are only useful with AC due to the alternating waveform which induces a voltage in the secondary winding (when it is connected to a load).
AC supply commonly used in all over world because AC is available easy. Ac equipments and appliances available on cheap price and easy to fault finding like AC motors having only stator winding. AC can easily convert in DC supply by using rectifier circuits . DC is probably difficult to convert in AC supply . thereby AC is popular rather then DC.
