full wave rectification

full wave rectification

rectification of the power supply to an x-ray tube that makes it possible for the reverse cycle, as well as the forward cycle, of the mains current coming to the tube to be utilized.

The full wave bridge rectifier uses four diodes arranged in a bridge circuit to give full wave rectification without the need for a centre-tapped transformer.
The unregulated AC/DC power supply part of the circuit consists of a transformer that steps down 230VAC to 15 volts Across a center tapped secondary winding 15V AC individually Across the two halves of the secondary winding with opposite polarities, diodes (D5) to (D8) that rectify the AC appearing Across the secondary with (D5) and (D7) providing 'full wave rectification to produce a positive output, (D6) and (D8), providing full wave rectification to produce a negative output, capacitors (C2) and (C3) providing the filtering action.
