Advantage of center-tap Full-wave rectifier


 These are the advantage of center-tap full wave rectifier:-

  1. The rectification efficiency of full-wave rectifier is double of that of a half-wave rectifier.
  2. The ripple voltage is low and of higher frequency in case of full-wave rectifier so simple filtering circuit is required.
  3. Higher output voltage, higher output power and higher Transformer Utilization Factor (TUF) in case of a full-wave rectifier.
  4. In a full-wave rectifier, there is no problem due to dc saturation of the core because the dc current in the two halves of the two halves of the transformer secondary flow in opposite directions.
