    Before I start writing about my problem, I would like to say, that i'm not english and i don't know the typical

    electronics names in english language, so sorry for all mistakes that I will make . I will be also pasting some

    pictures to let you know what I'm talking about. If I'm writing this in wrong section please move it to

    another one.

    So, well , I'm looking for some help with a report (kind of homework). It's about rectifier , which looks like

    that [​IMG] Wej means -input , wyj - output.

    I was doing measurements at school using oscilloscope , function generator and frequency meter. The

    oscilloscope has about 10%. accuracy.
    Below are the parameters that I've received:

    1.Harmonic Voltage UTR =13V
    2.Voltage rectified by the rectifier U1 = 13V . 200Hz (translating on english from my language it would be

    like voltage rectified by the rectifier one-half. It gets results that looks like

    3.Voltage rectified by the rectifier 'two-half" U2=12,5 V , 400Hz ( it gets results like

    this[​IMG] )
    4. Volage U1S – stabilized U1 byRC circuit 8,8V (constant) , 0.075V(variable)
    5. Voltage U2S - stabilised U2 by RC circuit 10V(constant) , 0,04V (variable)

    Unfortunately i didn't get frequency fot the last two , so i can only guess what it should be.

    I had to check the voltages shapes when the generator gives triangular and rectangular voltage.

    In the report I have to :

    1. make a graph when the generator gives sinusoidal ,riangular and rectangular voltage ( the last two I didnt

    check )

    2 Calculate the average and effective voltages value Utr , U1 , U2 for rectifier one-half and two-half.

    Mistakes Estimate by the total differential method.

    3. Compare the caltulated average voltages values of U1 , U2 with the measured constant components U1S ,

    U2S. Explain whe the variable components appeared.

    4.Calculate the efficiency of the voltage and the ripple factor for both of the rectifier (one-half and

    one-two). Mistakes estimate by the total differential method.

    That's all. I hope this is readable and someone will help me! It's very important for me. And sorry for the

    mistakes I made:)

    I will appreciate if someone can help me , especially on msn.

    2) The correct term in English is "half-wave rectification". You can imagine that those gaps are where the lower half of the sine (harmonic?) wave that is your source.

    3) The correct term in English is "full-wave rectification". You can imagine that the lower half of each sine wave is (sort of) folded up to fit in the gaps that you saw in (2).
