bridge rectifier ciruit

What is a rectifier ? Majority of electronics circuit require DC power and our household supply gets AC power. Here come the role of rectifier. Rectifiers ( bridge rectifier ) convert Alternating current to fluctuating Direct current. Fluctuating in the sense it has some ripples ( minor frequency in the output ). Whereas, pure DC … Read more
