Could someone help me out? I've looked at the two following diagrams: Two stage multiplier Full wave multiplier I'm not understanding how it works in terms of current flow and such. COuld someone explain this? Also, what's the difference between these two setups insofar as how well they work? I understand that it has something to do with using diodes to send the current in a specific way, and then charging capacitors in each stage, but beyond that, I'm not sure. Thanks!
