Find out Form factor and Peak factor:
For the output of full wave rectifier, find out
(a) RMS value,
(b) Average value,
(c) Form factor, and
(d) Peak factor.
Solution
The output current of full wave rectifier
Time period = π
(c) Form factor K_{ f } = I_{rms }/ I_{av } =0.707 I_{m}/0.637 I_{m}
(d) Peak factor K _{p }= I_{m}/ I_{rms} = Im /0.707 I_{m}= 1.414
