Circuit Set-up


Diodes in a Rectifier

This is lab 2 of 14 in the course
In this lab, students will learn about the applications of diodes in rectifiers and examine the components and operations of a full-wave rectifier. First, students will learn theory about a diode's role in a rectifier and complete several short answer questions to confirm their understanding. Then students will use Multisim Live to simulate a rectifier in a circuit and test their findings by implementing a full-wave rectifier on a breadboard. Finally, students will explore the use of filter circuits in rectifiers using an oscilloscope, all the while documenting their results.
