1. Calculate the waveform frequency and form factor of a half rectified sine wave(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ipk = Peak current = 11A

Tp = Pulse time of sine wave = 0.02s

T = Period = 0.035s

2. I have used the equations:

Irms = Ipk*sqrt(f*Tp/2)

Iave = (2*f*Ipk*Tp)/pi

f = 1/T

3. I have waveform frequency as 1/0.035 = 28.57Hz

I have Irms = 5.88A and Iave = 4.00A and therefore form factor = 5.88/4.00 = 1.47.

Does this look correct?

Thanks
