If the input frequency of a half wave rectifier is 100Hz, then the ripple frequency will be_________

Detailed Solution for Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 9

The ripple frequency of the output and input is same. This is because, one half cycle of input is passed and other half cycle is seized. So, effectively the frequency is the same.

Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 10

Ripple factor of a half wave rectifier is_________(Im is the peak current and RL is load resistance)

Detailed Solution for Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 10

The ripple factor of a rectifier is the measure of disturbances produced in the output. It’s the effectiveness of a power supply filter to reduce the ripple voltage. The ratio of ripple voltage to DC output voltage is ripple factor which is 1.21.

Efficiency of a centre tapped full wave rectifier is _________

Detailed Solution for Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 11

Efficiency of a rectifier is the effectiveness to convert AC to DC. It’s obtained by taking ratio of DC power output to maximum AC power delivered to load. It’s usually expressed in percentage. For centre tapped full wave rectifier, it’s 81.2%.

Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 12

A full wave rectifier supplies a load of 1KΩ. The AC voltage applied to diodes is 220V (rms). If diode resistance is neglected, what is the ripple voltage?

Detailed Solution for Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 12

The ripple voltage is (Vϒ)RMS=ϒVDC /100.
VDC=0.636*VRMS* √2=0.636*220* √2=198V and ripple factor ϒ for full wave rectifier is 0.482.
Hence, (Vϒ)RMS=0.482*198 /100=0.954V.

Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 13

A full wave rectifier delivers 50W to a load of 200Ω. If the ripple factor is 2%, calculate the AC ripple across the load.

Detailed Solution for Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 13

We know that, PDC=VDC2/RL. So, VDC=(PDC*RL)1/2=100001/2=100V.
Here, ϒ=0.02
ϒ=VAC/VDC=VAC/100.So, VAC=0.02*100=2V.

Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 14

A full wave rectifier uses load resistor of 1500Ω. Assume the diodes have Rf=10Ω, Rr=∞. The voltage applied to diode is 30V with a frequency of 50Hz. Calculate the AC power input.

Detailed Solution for Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 14

The AC power input PIN=IRMS2(RF+Rr).
IRMS=Im/√2=Vm/(Rf+RL)√2=30/(1500+10)*1.414=13.5mA
So, PIN=(13.5*10-3)2*(1500+10)=275.2mW.

Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 15

In a centre tapped full wave rectifier, RL=1KΩ and for diode Rf=10Ω. The primary voltage is 800sinωt with transformer turns ratio=2. The ripple factor will be _________​

Detailed Solution for Test: Half-Wave & Full-wave Rectifier - Question 15

The ripple factor ϒ= [(IRMS/IAVG)2 – 1]1/2. IRMS =Im /√2=Vm/(Rf+RL)√2=200/1.01=198.
(Secondary line to line voltage is 800/2=400. Due to centre tap Vm=400/2=200)
IRMS=198/√2=140mA, IAVG=2*198/π=126mA. ϒ=[(140/126)2-1]1/2=0.48. So, ϒ=48%.
