Best Answer

The primary purpose of a rectifier is to derive DC power from an AC supply. Virtually all electronic devices require DC, so rectifiers find uses inside the power supplies of virtually all electronic equipment.

How many diodes in a bridge rectifier?

Bridge Rectifier DiodesIn a "bridge" rectifier there is 4 diodes In a "full wave" there are 2 diodes.In a "half wave" rectifier there is 1 diode.

What happens when one of the diodes is removed from the bridge rectifier?

Nothing will happen to the diode but that rectifier effectively becomes a half-wave rectifier.

How can capacitor smooth or reduce the ripple of the voltage produced by the rectifier?

when rectifier is on, the capacitor is almost transparent (it charges to the voltage provided from the rectifier) when rectifier is off, capacitor holds the peak voltage since it stored a charge during rectifier on time.
