## Peak Current of single-phase center-tap full-wave rectifier

Instantaneous value of voltage applied to the rectifier is given as

**V _{S} = V_{m} sin ωt**

If the diode is assumed to have a forward resistance of R_{F} ohms and reverse resistance equal to infinity, then current flowing through the load resistance is given as

**i _{1} = I_{m} sin ωt** and

**i**for the first half cycle

_{2}= 0and **i _{1} = 0** and

**i**for second half cycle

_{2}= I_{m}sin ωtThe total current flowing through tha load resistance R_{L}, being the sum of currents i_{1} and i_{2}, is given as

**i = i _{1} + i_{2} = I_{m} sin ωt** for the whole cycle

Where peak value of current flowing through the load resistance R_{L} is given as

**I _{m} = V_{m} /(R_{F} + R_{L})**
