## In which rectifier efficiency and TUF are equal?

Complete answer:

Factors | Center tapped full wave rectifier |
---|---|

Transformer Utilization Factor (TUF) | The transformer utilization factor (TUF) is equal to 0.672 |

Voltage drop across diodes | Voltage drop across the two diodes of the center tapped rectifier is less when compared to bridge rectifier. |

## What is the ripple factor?

Ripple factor: Ripple factor is **a measure of effectiveness of a rectifier circuit**. It is defined as the ratio of RMS value of the AC component (ripple component) Irrms in the output waveform to the DC component VDC in the output waveform.

## What is the value of TUF?

The transformer utilization factor (TUF) of a rectifier circuit is defined as the ratio of the DC power available at the load resistor to the AC rating of the secondary coil of a transformer. rating of the transformer can be defined as: TRANSFORMER utilization factor for half wave rectifier is **.** **287 or** .

## What is the value of peak inverse voltage of full wave rectifier?

Transformer Utilization Factor of Bridge Rectifier

Parameters | Center tapped full wave rectifier | Bridge rectifier |
---|---|---|

Peak inverse voltage | 2V_{m} |
V_{m} |

Vdc(no load) | 2V_{m}/π |
2V_{m}/π |

Transformer utilization factor | 0.693 | 0.812 |

Ripple factor | 0.48 | 0.48 |

## How do you calculate ripple factor?

The ripple factor is, **= V RMS V DC 2 − 1 = 229.8 207** 2 − 1 = 0.482 = 48.2 % .

## What is the efficiency of full wave rectifier?

∴ The efficiency of a full wave rectifier is **81.2 %** so option (D) is correct.

## Which rectifier is more efficient?

From this, it can be said that **full-wave rectification** is a more efficient method than half-wave rectification since the entire waveform is used. Also, a ripple voltage that appears after smoothing will vary depending on the capacitance of this capacitor and the load.

## What is the ripple factor in LC filter?

Ripple factor for single-phase half-wave rectifier is 1.414 2. Ripple factor single phase full wave rectifier is **0.482 3**.

## What is ripple voltage formula?

Ripple current peak-to-peak into the −5V output capacitor is approximately equal to twice the negative load current. … The wave shape is roughly rectangular, and so is the resultant output ripple voltage. A 100mA negative load and 0.1Ω ESR output capacitor will have (2)(0.1A)(0.1Ω) = **20mV _{P}_{–}_{P} ripple**.

## What is peak inverse voltage?

Peak Inverse Voltage (PIV) or Peak Reverse Voltage (PRV) refer **to the maximum voltage a diode or other device can withstand in the reverse-biased direction before breakdown**. Also may be called Reverse Breakdown Voltage.
