This behaviour can generally be seen in the transient responses of the half-wave rectifier for different frequencies shown in Fig.
The improvement of dynamic behaviour of the conveyor based half-wave rectifier is also evident from the experimental measurement results shown in Fig.
Like the conventional balanced structure, this frequency doubler is composed of two anti-symmetrical FET half-wave rectifiers. The basic operating principle, in terms of the conduction, is the same as in Equations 1 and 2.
