Half wave rectifier circuit consists of resistive load, a diode and source of ac voltage, all connected in series. In half wave rectifier, rectifying elementconducts only during positive half cycle of input ac supply. The negative half cycles of ac supply are eliminated from the output. The dc output waveform isexpected to be a straight line but the half wave rectifier gives output in the formof positive sinusoidal pulses. Thus the output is called pulsating dc.
