Peak Inverse Voltage (PIV): It is defined as the maximum reverse voltage that a
diode can withstand without destroying the junction.

Regulation:
The variation of the d.c. output voltage as a function of d.c. load current is
called regulation. The percentage regulation is defined as

HALF-WAVE RECTIFIER:
A Half wave rectifier is one which converts a.c. voltage into a pulsating voltage using only
one half cycle of the applied a.c. voltage. The basic half-wave diode rectifier circuit along with its
input and output waveforms is shown in figure below.

The half-wave rectifier circuit shown in above figure consists of a resistive load; a rectifying
element i.e., p-n junction diode and the source of a.c. voltage, all connected is series. The a.c.
voltage is applied to the rectifier circuit using step-down transformer.
The input to the rectifier circuit,

V = Vm sin t

## Where Vm is the peak value of secondary a.c.

voltage
Operation:
For the positive half-cycle of input a.c. voltage, the diode D is forward biased and hence it
conducts. Now a current flows in the circuit and there is a voltage drop across RL. The waveform
of the diode current (or) load current is shown in figure.
For the negative half-cycle of input, the diode D is reverse biased and hence it does not
conduct. Now no current flows in the circuit i.e., i=0 and Vo=0. Thus for the negative half-cycle

conduct. Now no current flows in the circuit i.e., i=0 and Vo=0. Thus for the negative half-cycle
no power is delivered to the load.

## Transformer Utilization Factor (UTF):

The d.c. power to be delivered to the load in a rectifier circuit decides the rating of the
transformer used in the circuit. So, transformer utilization factor is defined as

TUF =

The factor which indicates how much is the utilization of the transformer in the circuit is called
Transformer Utilization Factor (TUF).
