FORMULAE:
1. Ripple Factor = Vr,rms / Vdc
2. % Regulation = VNL- VFL/ VFL x 100
THEORY:
A full wave rectifier is a circuit, which allows a unidirectional
current to flow through the load, during the entire input cycle as shown
in the figure. The result of full wave rectification is a DC output voltage.
They pulsate every half cycle of the input signal. There are two types of
full wave rectifier namely.
1. CENTERTAPPED FULL WAVE RECTIFIER
2. BRIDGE TYPE RECTIFIER
The center tapped full wave rectifier uses two diodes, where are
connected to the centre tapped secondary winding of the transformer
circuit so that the current flows and produce a voltage drop across the
load resister RL. the voltage produce across the load resister has the same
shape as that of the positive input half cycle of AC input voltage as
shown in the figure. The waveform of diode current is also shown in the
figure.
During the negative half cycle of input voltage, the diode is
reverse biased and hence it does not conduct. Thus there is no current
flow or no voltage drop across the load resister RL. During
The positive half cycle of input voltage, the diode i.e. forward biased
and hence it conducts. The result is that output voltage appears across
the load resister RL. Now it is evident that the output voltage is not a
steady DC. But it is only a pulsating DC wave having ripple factor
frequency equal to the input voltage frequency.
To smoothen out the voltage ripples or pulsating DC a capacitor
filter is used. This filter blocks AC components and freely passes DC
components.
PROCEDURE:
1. Connect the Wires in circuit as shown in the figure
2. Switch on the supply and note down the reading of DC
input voltage in secondary of transformer and rectified DC voltage
3. Vary the load in convenient steps and note down rectified
DC&AC voltage
4. Connect the capacitor filter and repeat the steps 3 for
5. Calculate the ripple factor and % of regulation from the obtained
6. You can draw the input and output waveforms of rectifier (with &
without filter ) by the using of CRO
7. Draw the graph between
a. load resistance and ripple factor by using without filter
b. load resistance and ripple factor by using with filter

RESULT:
Thus the full Wave Rectifier has done and the following
Parameters are calculated.

1.   Ripple factor Without filter is     =
2.   Ripple factor With filter is        =
3.   % of Regulation without filter is   =
4.   % of Regulation with filter is      =
