# Which of the following is not an advantage of the full wave bridge rectifier relative to the half wave rectifier?

Contents

## What are advantages of a full wave bridge rectifier?

Efficiency is higher. The large DC power output. Ripple factor is less. The ripple voltage is low and the higher frequency in case full-wave rectifier so simple filtering circuit is required.

## What are the advantage of a full wave bridge rectifier as compared to a full wave Centre tapped rectifier?

The main advantage of a center tapped full wave rectifier is that it allows electric current during both positive and negative half cycles of the input AC signal. A bridge rectifier which uses four or more diodes in a bridge circuit configuration to convert AC signal into DC signal.

## What are the advantages of a full wave rectifier over a half wave rectifier?

1) The rectification efficiency of full wave rectifier is double than the half wave rectifier because it converts both the cycles of AC to DC. 2)Ripple factor is less in full wave rectifier so waveform is smooth. 3)The ripple frequency is also double so they are easy to filter out.

The need for the center-tapped transformer is eliminated. It can be used in application floating output terminals, no output terminal is grounded. Transformer utilization factor, in case of the bridge rectifier, is higher than that of a center tap rectifier.

## What are the advantages and disadvantages of half-wave over full wave rectification?

The transformer utilization factor is low. They produce a low output voltage. DC saturation of transformer core resulting in magnetizing current and also some hysteresis losses and generation of harmonics. The power output and therefore rectification efficiency are quite low.

## What are the advantages and disadvantages of the full wave center-tapped and bridge rectifier circuit?

Advantages of a center-tapped full-wave rectifier:

The ripple factor is much less than that of a half-wave rectifier. The DC output voltage and DC load current value are twice those of a half-wave rectifier. The rectification efficiency of the full-wave rectifier is double of that of a half-wave rectifier.

## Which full wave rectifier is better?

In center tapped rectifiers, the peak inverse voltage coming across each diodes is double the maximum voltage across the half of the secondary winding. The transformer utilization factor is more in bridge rectifier as compared to the center tapped full wave rectifier, which makes it more beneficial.

## Why bridge wave rectifier is preferred over full wave rectifier?

The bridge rectifier’s PIV ratings are half of what is needed in a center tapped full wave rectifier. … The bridge rectifier has a high peak inverse voltage.
