1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Devise the mean voltage and current in controlled and uncontrolled single device rectifier circuits with R-L series loads. Single circuit series circuit given of an AC voltage source, a uncontrolled diode, resistor, inductor. V = 240 v, F = 50 Hz, R = 10 ohms, L = 50 mH 2. Relevant equations Not given 3. The attempt at a solution I know that Vs = Vmaxsin(wt) , I know that in a series circuit current is the same throughout, but this is AC, do the same rules apply? I also know that Vav for half wave rectifier = Vpeak/pi. I found this from the fact that Vav for a full wave = 2Vpeak/pi. But is this the same for an R-L load? I don't know where to start in terms of the mean current.
