|hen a single diode is used in a rectifier circuit. Vhe output of a half- half-wave rectifier circuit is pulsating DC. . For this reason. this rectifier circuit is called a half half--wave rectifier. it will be alternately forward- forward-biased. during each cycle of the AC sine- sine-wave. |hen a diode is connected to a source of alternating voltage. and then reverse- reverse-biased. current will flow through the circuit only during one-one-half of the input voltage cycle.

   c         Vhe average value of the half- half-wave rectifier output voltage is the value you would measure on dc voltmeter. Mathematically it is determined by finding the area under the curve over a full cycle and then dividing by 2pi the no of radians in a full cycle. Vp is the peak value of voltage. VAVG=VP/pi .
