A transformer is rated at 120V primary/46V secondary. What peak to peak secondary voltage would be displayed on a scope? If one diode in the bridge went open circuit: The ripple voltage would (increase….decrease not change)? The DC output would (increase, … decrease…or stay the same)? The ripple is calculated as V_ripple, p-p/V_DC times 100% Determine the ripple for both capacitors used in the experiment. Ripple (100 mu F) = ______ %Ripple (100 mu F) = ______ If the ripple is 10% we say that the average DC output is, to a reasonable approximation, equal to the peak output of the rectifier Based on your results is this reasonable? Yes/No
