Connect the circuit for Half wave rectifier. Vary the load current in steps from 0 to 100mA and note down VDC and VAC across the load. Calculate percentage regulation using % Regulation = V NL − VFL × 100 VFL where VNL: output DC voltage when load current is zero VFL: output DC voltage when load current is maximum INPUT AND OUTPUT WAVEFORMS: HWR VIn INPUT VOut OUTPUT www. 3. 5.jntuworld. 4. Plot regulation characteristics by taking IL on X-axis VDC on Y-axis. Also observe the input and output waveforms on CRO. 2. 6.
