Average Output Voltage Vdc of Full Wave Rectifier

  1. Jun 21, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The Vdc of Full Wave Rectifier (with diode) with midpoint configuration has been found to be
    2Vm/(pi) and Vrms = Vm/sqrt(2)

    How about the Vdc and Vrms value for the full wave rectifier but with bridge configuration.
    The difference is the the peak inverse voltage across the diode is Vm instead of 2Vm for midpoint configuration.

    Therefore, for bridge configuration,
    Vdc = Vm/(pi)
    and
    Vrms = Vm/2

    Am I correct?

    Thanks in advance.
