Peak Inverse Voltage of Diode

Peak Inverse Voltage or PIV is the maximum voltage appearing across the p-n junction diode when it is non-conducting. A diode do not conducts when it is reversed biased. This means peak inverse voltage is the maximum reversed biased voltage across the diode terminals when...

Center Tapped Full Wave Rectifier

A Center Tapped Full wave Rectifier is a circuit which makes unidirectional flow of current through the load during the full cycle of input voltage. Two diodes are so connected across the terminals of center tapped transformer secondary terminals that one diode conducts for positive...
