Controlled rectifiers, or converters, as they are generally called, are broadly classified into full-controlled and half-controlled types.
The ratings of a semiconductor device give the values for the various conditions that a manufactu
The maximum power that can be controlled by a single SCR is determined by its rated forward current and rated forward blocking voltage.
Rectification is the process of converting alternating current or voltage into direct current or voltage.
Full-wave rectifier are more commonly used than half-wave rectifier, due to their higher average voltages and currents, higher efficiency, and reduced ripple factor.
The transistor is used to amplify the weak signal a CE amplifier connection is shown in below figure.
Zener diodes are used to maintain a fixed voltage. They are designed to 'breakdown' in a reliable and non-destructive way so that they
In voltage multiplier circuit two or more peak rectifiers are cascaded to produce a d.c voltage equal to multiplier of the peak input voltages
Triode is a vacuum tube with three electrodes which are cathode, Anode and a control grid. The function of additional third electrode
A Vacuum tube diode is a two electrode vacuum tube as its name shows DI for two ODE for electrodes. The two electrodes are cathode and anode (plate).
