## Voltage Multipliers: Voltage Doubler, Tripler and Quadrupler

Voltage Multipliers are electric circuits to increase the voltage by a factor of two, three or four in case of Voltage Doubler, Tripler or Quarple respectively. The Voltage multiplier …

## Full Wave Bridge Rectifier operation with Capacitor Filter

The Bridge type full wave rectifier can convert an AC to DC by the mean of four diodes in such configuration that the output peak voltage remains equal to …

## RLC Series circuit, phasor diagram with solved problem

RLC Series circuit contains a resistor, capacitor, and inductor in series combination across an alternating current source. The behavior of components can be explained by phasor diagrams, impedance and …

## What is a Phasor Diagram in AC circuit Analysis: Phasor Algebra

Phasor diagram in an AC circuit analysis is to represent the phase angle i.e. leading and lagging effect through vector representation. Phasor algebra, polar form, and complex number conversions …

## Average power in ac circuit: The power factor & its importance?

Power Factor (PF) play an important role in average power dissipation in an ac circuit. PF leads to the concept of three different real, reactive and apparent power, which …

## Reactance and Impedance of capacitor and inductor in AC circuit

Capacitor and inductor oppose current in AC circuit because of inertia of electron motion, which is called capacitive and inductive reactance respectfully.
