Half-wave Rectifier

Overview

A rectifier is a circuit that converts an AC signal to DC signal. Since the diode only allows current in only one direction-when the diode is forward-biased- and it acts as an open circuit when it is reverse-biased. So when the diode is forward-biased, the output is one half-cycle of the input and the other half cycle is removed when the diode is reverse biased.
