Difference between half wave rectifier and full wave rectifier

Before we going to learn the Difference between half wave rectifier and full wave rectifier let us first know about rectifier. What is a Rectifier ? The process of converting an alternating current into direct current is called rectification. The device used for this purpose is called rectifier. Half wave rectifier A rectifier which conducts only during the positive half

What is Rectifier ?

The process of converting an alternating current into direct current is called rectification. The device used for this purpose is called rectifier. Junction diode can be used as a rectifier in which single diode is used in a half wave rectifier and two diodes are used in full wave rectifier. Working of half wave rectifier A rectifier which conducts only

What is Transistor

The device which consists of two p-n junctions is called transistors. These are of two types. Namely p-n-p transistor n-p-n transistor. The three sections of the  are Emitter, Base and Collector. Emitter The section at one end of the transistor and is heavily doped is called emitter. It supplies large number of charge carriers for current flow. Base The middle

Zener diode

Zener diodezener diode working A highly doped p-n junction diode which has a sharp breakdown voltage when operated in the reverse bias conditions is called Zener diode. This diode is operated in the reverse breakdown region without getting damaged. Zener diode as a voltage regulator Zener diode can be used as a voltage regulator to provide, constant voltage from a

n-type and p-type semiconductor

n – type semiconductor When a pure tetravalent semiconductor is doped with pentavalent atoms like phosphorus, arsenic, antimony, bismuth, then n – type semiconductor is formed. When pentavalent atom like arsenic is added to germanium atoms. Arsenic atoms occupy some of the positions instead of germanium atoms. Arsenic atom will establish four covalent bonds with neighbouring germanium atoms and its
