Objectives

This chapter analyses diode circuits and load line with the Q-point concept. The formulation of the diode as a voltage regulator, half-wave rectifier, and full-wave rectifier along with bridge rectification and performance analysis of rectifier circuits will be dealt with in detail. This is followed by a derivation of peak inverse voltage, dc voltage and current, ripple factor, and efficiency. Clipper and clamper circuits, comparators, and additional diode circuits will be analysed at the end of the ...
