What is Rectifier?
A rectifier is an electrical device that converts alternating current, which periodically reverses direction, to direct current, which flows in only one direction. The reverse operation is performed by the inverter. The process is known as rectification since it “straightens” the direction of the current.

What are the three types of rectifiers?
The Different Types of Rectifiers
- Single Phase & Three Phase Rectifiers.
- Half Wave & Full Wave Rectifiers.
- Bridge Rectifiers.
- Uncontrolled & Controlled Rectifiers.
How do I choose a rectifier?
Bridge rectifiers are usually chosen based on the average rectified current IF(av) and the maximum reverse blocking voltage VDC. Typical IF is 1A and 2A while VDC is 600V, 800V, and 1000V. These are the common values used in our reference designs. For high-power designs such as yours, a 2A or 3A rating can be used.
Which type of rectifier is best?
The single-phase uncontrolled full wave bridge rectifier circuit configuration (four diodes arranged in a bridge circuit) is the most widely used rectifier configuration today.
