Abstract

Rectifier circuits are commonly found in all types of electronic systems. The function of a rectifier circuit is to convert an ac voltage into a dc voltage as part of a power supply. Traditionally, the ac voltage is usually a single-phase or polyphase voltage at mains’ frequency. However in some modern applications, e.g., switching regulators, the ac voltage can also be a nonsinusoidal waveform at a frequency of more than 100 kHz.
