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