Rectifiers Question and Answer

11. The bridge rectifier is preferred to an ordinary two diode full wave rectifier because

  3. 1.11
  4. 1.21

15. The use of a capacitor filter in a rectifier circuit gives satisfactory performance only when the load

  1. current is high
  2. current is low
  3. voltage is high
  4. voltage is low
