1. 1. EDC-UNIT2 Question&answer GRIET-ECE G.Surekha Page 1 UNIT – II RECTIFIERS & FILTERS 1. Explain about Regulated DC power supply. For the operation of most of the electronics devices and circuits, a d.c. source is required. So it is advantageous to convert domestic a.c. supply into d.c.voltages. The process of converting a.c. voltage into d.c. voltage is called as rectification. This is achieved with i) Step-down Transformer, ii) Rectifier, iii) Filter and iv) Voltage regulator circuits. These elements constitute d.c. regulated power supply shown in the figure below. Fig. Block diagram of Regulated D.C. Power Supply Transformer – steps down 230V AC mains to low voltage AC. Rectifier – converts AC to DC, but the DC output is varying. Smoothing – smooth the DC from varying greatly to a small ripple. Regulator – eliminates ripple by setting DC output to a fixed voltage. The block diagram of a regulated D.C. power supply consists of step-down transformer, rectifier, filter, voltage regulator and load.An ideal regulated power supply is an electronics circuit designed to provide a predetermined d.c. voltage Vo which is independent of the load current and variations in the input voltage ad temperature. If the output of a regulator circuit is a AC voltage then it is termed as voltage stabilizer, whereas if the output is a DC voltage then it is termed as voltage regulator.The elements of the regulated DC power supply are discussed as follows: TRANSFORMER: A transformer is a static device which transfers the energy from primary winding to secondary winding through the mutual induction principle, without changing the frequency. The transformer winding to which the supply source is connected is called the primary, while the winding connected to the load is called secondary. If N1,N2 are the number of turns of the primary and secondary of the transformer then 2 1 N N is called the turns ratio of the transformer. The different types of the transformers are 1) Step-Up Transformer 2) Step-Down Transformer 3) Centre-tapped Transformer The voltage, current and impedance transformation rations are related to the turns ratio of the transformer by the following expressions. www.jntuworld.com www.jntuworld.com

Explain Rectifier Characteristics. RECTIFIER: Any electrical device which offers a low resistance to the current in one direction but a high resistance to the current in the opposite direction is called rectifier. Such a device is capable of converting a sinusoidal input waveform, whose average value is zero, into a unidirectional waveform, with a non-zero average component. A rectifier is a device which converts a.c. voltage (bi-directional) to pulsating d.c. voltage (Uni-directional). Characteristics of a Rectifier Circuit: 1. Load currents: They are two types of output current. They are average or d.c. current and RMS currents. i) Average or DC current: The average current of a periodic function is defined as the area of one cycle of the curve divided by the base.

Explain Half-wave Rectifier and derive all parameters. Half-Wave Rectifier: A Half – wave rectifier is one which converts a.c. voltage into a pulsating voltage using only one half cycle of the applied a.c. voltage. Fig. a Basic structure of Half-Wave Rectifier The half-wave rectifier circuit shown in above figure consists of a resistive load, a rectifying element i.e., p-n junction diode and the source of a.c. voltage, all connected is series. The a.c. voltage is applied to the rectifier circuit using step-down transformer. Fig.b Input and output waveforms of a Half wave rectifier The input to the rectifier circuit, m sinV V t Where Vm is the peak value of secondary a.c. voltage. Operation: For the positive half-cycle of input a.c. voltage, the diode D is forward biased and hence it conducts. Now a current flows in the circuit and there is a voltage drop across RL. The waveform of the diode current (or) load current is shown in figure. www.jntuworld.com www.jntuworld.com
5. 5. EDC-UNIT2 Question&answer GRIET-ECE G.Surekha Page 5 For the negative half-cycle of input, the diode D is reverse biased and hence it does not conduct. Now no current flows in the circuit i.e., i=0 and Vo=0. Thus for the negative half- cycle no power is delivered to the load.

The larger the magnitude of the diode forward resistance, the greater is this decrease for a given current change. viii) Transformer Utilization Factor (UTF): The d.c. power to be delivered to the load in a rectifier circuit decides the rating of the transformer used in the circuit. So, transformer utilization factor is defined as ( ) dc ac rated P TUF P The factor which indicates how much is the utilization of the transformer in the circuit is called Transformer Utilization Factor (TUF). The a.c. power rating of transformer = Vrms Irms The secondary voltage is purely sinusoidal hence its rms value is 1 2 times maximum while the current is half sinusoidal hence its rms value is 1 2 of the maximum.

If the transformer rating is 1 KVA (1000VA) then the half-wave rectifier can deliver 1000 X 0.287 = 287 watts to resistance load. ix) Peak Inverse Voltage (PIV): It is defined as the maximum reverse voltage that a diode can withstand without destroying the junction. The peak inverse voltage across a diode is the peak of the negative half- cycle.

11. 11. EDC-UNIT2 Question&answer GRIET-ECE G.Surekha Page 11 Because of all these disadvantages, the half-wave rectifier circuit is normally not used as a power rectifier circuit. 4.Explain Full Wave Rectifier and derive all the parameters. Full – Wave Rectifier: A full-wave rectifier converts an ac voltage into a pulsating dc voltage using both half cycles of the applied ac voltage. In order to rectify both the half cycles of ac input, two diodes are used in this circuit. The diodes feed a common load RL with the help of a center-tap transformer. A center-tap transformer is the one which produces two sinusoidal waveforms of same magnitude and frequency but out of phase with respect to the ground in the secondary winding of the transformer. The full wave rectifier is shown in the figure below. Fig. Full-Wave Rectifier. Fig. wave forms of the input voltage, the o/p voltage across the load Resistor Operation: During positive half of the input signal, anode of diode D1 becomes positive and at the same time the anode of diode D2 becomes negative. Hence D1 conducts and D2 does not www.jntuworld.com www.jntuworld.com
12. 12. EDC-UNIT2 Question&answer GRIET-ECE G.Surekha Page 12 conduct. The load current flows through D1 and the voltage drop across RL will be equal to the input voltage. During the negative half cycle of the input, the anode of D1 becomes negative and the anode of D2 becomes positive. Hence, D1 does not conduct and D2 conducts. The load current flows through D2 and the voltage drop across RL will be equal to the input voltage. It is noted that the load current flows in the both the half cycles of ac voltage and in the same direction through the load resistance. Analysis: Let a sinusoidal voltage Vi be applied to the input of a rectifier. It is given by Vi=Vm sinωt The current i1 though D1 and load resistor RL is given by I sinm1 i t for 0 t 0 1 i for 2t Where Im Vm R R Lf Similarly, the current i2 through diode D2 and load resistor RL is given by 2 0i for 0 t I sinm2 i t for 2t Therefore, the total current flowing through RL is the sum of the two currents i1 and i2. i.e., iL = i1 + i2. 1.

Explain about Bridge rectifier using neat diagram. A bridge rectifier makes use of four diodes in a bridge arrangement to achieve full-wave rectification. This is a widely used configuration, both with individual diodes wired as shown and with single component bridges where the diode bridge is wired internally. www.jntuworld.com www.jntuworld.com
15. 15. EDC-UNIT2 Question&answer GRIET-ECE G.Surekha Page 15 Current flow in the bridge rectifier For both positive and negative swings of the transformer, there is a forward path through the diode bridge. Both conduction paths cause current to flow in the same direction through the load resistor, accomplishing full-wave rectification. While one set of diodes is forward biased, the other set is reverse biased and effectively eliminated from the circuit. 4. Compare HWR,FWR,Bridge rectifier. www.jntuworld.com www.jntuworld.com
