Hey guys,

I have a question concerning CW generator which might be a bit stupid:

How can we increase the voltage by using an AC source, capacitors and diodes ?

Capacitors is used to store charge, diode to block current flowing the "wrong way", since its an AC current, capacitors will charge and discharge continually.

By using diodes we could transform ac into dc, but how can we increase it?
