Rectification circuits use which type of diode | Basic Electronics MCQ#6

Rectification circuits use which type of diode:

  1. Zener Diode
  2. Normal diode
  3. Varactor diode
  4. Any of above

Correct answer: 2. Normal diode

In Electrical Engineering Rectification refers to the conversion of Alternating current (AC) to Direct current (DC). Rectification circuits can use diode for converting AC to DC.

Good to know:

  • A Zener diode operates in reverse bias to obtain voltage
  • A Varactor diode is a special purpose diode which is used as voltage-controlled capacitors
