Negative rectifier and filter

  1. Dec 8, 2007 #1
    I wanted to make a negativer full bridge rectifier circuit and filter it, so that after it went past the bridge, the output voltage would be full wave but negative. Tried reversing the diodes on the actual full bridge rectifier but doesn't work.


    Refer to the diagram on the left,is it correct? My output waveform is still positive.

    You haven't really reversed anything at all between the two circuits. They are simply drawn differently.
