Ripple voltage is caused by the charging and discharging of the filter

The Smaller the ripple voltage, the better the filter.

Clamper: A circuit that adds a dc level to an AC voltage using a diode and a

Clipper: See limiters.

Filter: A capacitor or combination of capacitor and inductor used to reduce
the variation of the output voltage from a rectifier.

Full-wave rectifier: A circuit that converts an AC sinusoidal input voltage
into a pulsating DC voltage with two output pulses occurring for each input

Half-wave rectifier: A circuit that convers an AC sinusoidal input voltage
into a pulsating DC output voltage with one output pulses occurring fir each
input cycle.

Limiter: A diode circuit that clips off or removes part of a waveform above
and/or below a specified level.

Power supply: A circuit that convers AC line voltage to DC voltage and
supplies constant power to operate a circuit system.
