# UNCONTROLLED HALF WAVE AND FULL WAVE RECTIFIER (SIMULATION AND HARDWARE RESULT COMPARISON)

Posted on at

AIM OF THE EXPERIMENT
Uncontrolled rectification with R and RL load
To check the performance parameter of uncontrolled full wave rectifier using R and RL loads
REQUIRED COMPONENTS AND EQUIPMENTS
1.  Diodes
3.  Inductor
5.  Oscilloscope
6.  DMM.
THEORY
When AC -> DC voltages then there are losses in the circuits and thus
100%  efficiency can't be achieved.  It  is  important  to  get idea  of  efficiency  to  find  in
systems losses beside this there are certain parameters which changes. Calculate its values using
the following formulae.
PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS
1.  Wave form with only R load
2.  Wave form with RL load
3.   Average value of output voltage Vdc
4.  Average value of output current Idc
5.  Output dc power

Pdc=Vdc*Idc
6.  Vrms
7.  Irms
8.  Vac= (V2rms - V2dc)1/2
9.  The output ac power
Pac= Vrms*Irms
10.  Efficiency η
η =
11.  Form Factor FF
FF=
12.  Ripple Factor RF
RF=
PROCEDURE
1.  First of all draw the circuits of Fig.1, Fig.2, Fig.3 and Fig.4 in Simulink and simulate it. Do
also all analysis for comparison with hardware.
2.  Construct the circuits as shown in Fig.1, Fig.2, Fig.3 and Fig.4 on breadboard.
3.  First  use  Resistive  load  only  and  then  completing  the  require  results  and  taking
observations connect Resistive plus Inductive load (RL) and repeat the procedure again.
4.  Note the reading as required to fill the table.
5.   Make comparison between the results of rectifier with resistive load and resistive plus
6.  Change the values of R and L if variable loads are available.
7.  Make comparison due to variation of load.
8.  Make comparison of the simulated and hardware values and graphs.
