AC TO DC CONVERSIONS

The ac to dc conversions is nothing but it is a rectifier which is used to convert alternating current in to the direct current.we need a dc source in most of the time,in this case we should use a rectifier.

There are three types of rectifier a)Half wave rectifier b)Full wave rectifier c)Bridge rectifier.

In half wave rectifier  contains only one diode to convert alternaing current to the direct current.during positive half of the the cycle it conducts and during negative half of the cycle it doesn't conducts.

In fullwave rectifer is also converts alternating current in to the direct current but it contains four diodes to perform the operation.but it is compare to the half wave rectifier the output voltage so constant.
