rectifier

A component that converts alternating current into direct current.

Rectifier

A rectifier is an electrical device that converts alternating current (AC), which periodically reverses direction, to direct current (DC), which flows in only one direction. The process is known as rectification. Physically, rectifiers take a number of forms, including vacuum tube diodes, mercury-arc valves, copper and selenium oxide rectifiers, s...

rectifier

A device such as an electron tube or semiconductor junction which converts alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC) by allowing more current to flow through it in one direction than another. A half-wave rectifier transmits only one polarity of the alternating current, producing a pulsating di...
