I am not understanding this topic whatsoever. We used an oscilloscope to measure the DC voltage and ripple voltage of a circuit (there was a diode, resistor, and capacitor on it).

With these values, I calculated the Q factor. The formula for this was:

Q = (DC voltage - ripple voltage) / DC voltage

I need to perform a consistency test on the experimental Q factor with the expected Q factor for an ideal AC to DC conversion.

...But I don't know what the DC voltage and ripple voltage would be for the ideal conversion.

Any help would be appreciated, whether its an explanation of the concepts or the values for the ideal conversion.

Thanks
