AC-DC Rectifier Operation

The lab investigates the operation of a single-phase diode full-bridge rectifier, under different input inductance and output capacitance conditions, and the relationships among physical parameters and operating conditions determining the amplitude of output voltage AC component.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES


After completing this lab, students will be able to:
  1. Given the parameters of a MOSFET, a source voltage and a load resistance, calculate the gate driver voltage required to achieve a desired output voltage, you will determine the MOSFET operating region and calculate its drain-to-source voltage and current, power losses and junction temperature, with specified units and decimal digits, by applying the appropriate MOSFET equations
  2. Given the parameters of a MOSFET, a source voltage, and a load resistance, determine the gate driver voltage required to achieve a desired output voltage by simulating the MOSFET operation, you will determine the MOSFET operating region and calculate its drain-to-source voltage and current, power losses and junction temperature, with specified units and decimal digits, and you will determine the accuracy of theoretical predictions.
  3. Given a real MOSFET, a DC power supply, a load resistor of given resistance, and a function generator, set experimentally the MOSFET gate driver voltage allowing to achieve a desired output voltage, you will record the measurement, with specified units and decimal digits, you will compare the measured values with the simulations, and you will determine the accuracy of simulations.
