The length of time required for the current to decay to zero will equal the time required for the current to rise to its Ohm’s law value when the circuit is energized. FIGURE 3–2 Current rises at an exponential rate (Delmar/Cengage Learning) FIGURE 3–3 Current decreases at an exponential rate (Delmar/Cengage Learning) 46 ALTERNATING CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS In Direct Current Fundamentals, it was shown that inductance is really a form of electrical inertia. Inductance is the ability of a circuit component, such as a reactor coil, to store energy in the electromagnetic field.

Full-Wave Rectifier Figure 2–8 shows a resistance-type load connected across the output of a full-wave rectifier. The full-wave rectifier causes both alternations of the cycle to be above the zero reference line in a positive direction. Even though the voltage and the resultant current at the resistance load are pulsating, they do not reverse direction. 637 of the instantaneous maximum voltage. The dc voltmeter has a d’Arsonval movement, which operates on the same principle as a dc motor. This means that the deflection of the needle is determined by the average torque exerted on the movement for a time period of 360 electrical degrees.

It has a frequency three times that of the fundamental and is superimposed on the fundamental wave. Note that the resultant pattern of the fundamental wave is different in the two diagrams. The difference arises because the phase relationship of the harmonic wave with the fundamental wave in the two illustrations is different. This text cannot cover the various circuit problems involving unique ac voltage wave patterns. Therefore, it will be assumed that sine-wave voltage and current values are used throughout this text, unless otherwise noted.
