Textbook Problem

Technician A says that the waveform produced by an AC generator after rectification is called a sine wave. Technician B says that the waveform produced by the AC generator after the output moves through the diodes is a straight line because it is a constant DC voltage. Who is correct?

  1. Technician A

  • Technician B
  • Both A and B
  • Neither A nor B
  • Expert Solution
    To determine

    Whether Technician A or Technician B is correct.

    Explanation of Solution

    Diodes are used to rectify current in an ac generator. It converts DC from AC. The sinusoidal voltage is produced by AC generators because it rotates in both directions. The produced waveform is,

    The output voltage Vin is converted into DC with the help of diodes. This process is called rectification. The output voltage Vin is treated as input signal for the diode circuit
