Power Electronics (A SINGLE DIODE CIRCUIT )


Power Electronics (A SINGLE DIODE CIRCUIT )

Logo for Power Electronics (A SINGLE DIODE CIRCUIT )
This page describes a single diode circuit. Most of the power electronic applications operate at a relative high voltage and in such cases, the voltage drop across the power diode tends to be small. It is quite often justifiable to use the ideal diode model. An ideal diode has zero conduction drop when it is forward-biased and has zero current when it is reverse-biased. The explanation and the analysis presented below is based on the ideal diode model.
