Analysis of Dynamic Performance of Half-Wave Rectifiers and its Improvements

J. Koton, N. Herencsar, K. Vrba


This paper deals with the analysis of dynamic behaviour of half-wave rectifiers and compares circuit solutions using standard operational amplifiers and current conveyors as active elements. The voltage and current sourcing principle and their influence to dynamic limits of diodes are given. Using the voltage or current biasing scheme, improvements in the dynamic performance of the diodes and rectifier are shown and discussed. The theoretical conclusions are supported by experimental results.
