Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 1

The circuit shown below is initially relaxed. With switch closed at t = 0, the conduction time of diode is around

Detailed Solution for Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 1

For the series RLC diode circuit, the current i(t) is given by

Here 

The diode will stop conducting when ωr t1 = π.
∴ Conduction time of diode,

Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 2

The effect of using freewheeling diode are:
1. the load performance is improved.
2. the system efficiency is improved.
3. it prevents the output voltage from becoming negative.

Choose the correct code from the given options, 

Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 3

A single-phase 230 V, 1 kW heater is connected across single-phase 230 V, 50 Hz supply through a diode as shown in figure. The power delivered to the heater element is

Detailed Solution for Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 3

The rms value of output voltage is:


Heater resistance

∴ Power absorbed by heater element

Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 4

A single-phase full-bridge diode rectifier delivers a load current of 10 A, which is ripple free. The rms and average values of diode currents are respectively

Detailed Solution for Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 4

Given, I0 = 10A
The rms value of diode current,

The average value of diode current,

Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 5

In the circuit shown below, the diode states at the extremely large negative value of the input voltage vi are

Detailed Solution for Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 5

If vi is of very large negative value Ivi| > |E|, then diode D1 will be forward biased (ON) while diode D2 will be reverse biased (OFF).

Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 6

A single-phase full-bridge diode rectifier delivers a constant load current of 20 A. The rms and average values of source current are respectively

Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 7

A diode whose internal resistance is 20 Q is to supply power to a 1 kΩ load from a 230 V (rms) source of supply as shown in figure below. The percentage regulation from no load to the given load is

Detailed Solution for Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 7



∴ Voltage regulation

Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 8

Assertion (A): A single-phase half-wave rectifier circuit is popularly known as one-pulse rectifier.
Reason (R) : A single-phase half-wave rectifier circuit is used to convert ac power to dc.

Detailed Solution for Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 8

A single-phase half-wave rectifier is popularly known as one-pulse converter because for one cycle of supply voltage, there is one half-cycle of output, or load voltage. Hence, both assertion and reason are true but reason is not the correct explanation of assertion.

Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 9

Assertion (A) : In 3-phase converters, the ripple frequency of the converter output voltage is higher than in single phase converter.
Reason (R) : The load current is mostly discontinuous in 3-phase converters.

Detailed Solution for Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 9

The load current is mostly continuous in 3-phase converters. Hence reason is a false statement.

Test: Diode Rectifiers - Question 10

Assertion (A) : In a half-wave rectifier with R-L load and with freewheeling diode, the input Volt- Ampere demand is less.
Reason (R) : With freewheeling diode, the stored energy is in the load itself.
