cycle when diode is not conducting).

In HWR PIV = V
m

When a fitter with capacitor is used with HWR then PIV = 2 V
m.

a) Very high ripple factor (r = 1.21)
b) Low rectification efficiency (η =40.5%)
c) TUF is low (0.287)
d) There is a DC current component through the winding of the transformer,
which can lead to saturation of transformer core, which is un desirable.

Solution: -
Circuit Diagram of bridge rectifier with transformer and load interchanged
is given below.

If Transformer and load are interchanged as shown in the figure (b) above, for
positive half cycle, i.e., point D is positive wrt point C, current flows through D1 and
D2. At the same time current also flows through D4 and D3. The potential at point A
is equal to point B and there is no current through RL and no output voltage available.

The current through the diodes will be very high as diode resistance ® is very small.
Therefore diodes may be burnt.
For negative half cycle, when point ‘D’ is negative not ‘C’, all the diodes will be
reverse biased and only reverse saturation current flows. Again points ‘A’ and ‘B’
will be at same potential and no current flows through R
L
. No output voltage
available.
Therefore, there will not be any output voltage if we interchange the load and the
transformer.
