dArsonval MM with

Wave Rectification.

In previous chapter, we have

discuss in detail about dArsonval

MM (PMMC) and its applications in

Ammeter, Voltmeter and

Ohmmeters.

Now, well learn about using the

same MM to measure ac current or

voltages.

dArsonval MM with

Wave Rectification.

In order to measure ac with dArsonval

MM, we must first rectify the ac current by

use of a diode rectifier.

This process will produce uni-directional

current flow.

Several types of diode rectifiers are

available: copper oxide, vacuum diode,

semiconductor diode etc.

correctly if directly connected to alternating

current, because the direction of needle

movement will change with each half-cycle

of the AC.

Permanent-magnet meter movements, like

permanent-magnet motors, are devices

whose motion depends on the polarity of

the applied voltage.

dArsonval MM with

Wave Rectification.

If we add a diode to a DC Voltmeter,

then we have a meter circuit capable of

measuring ac voltage.

dArsonval MM with

Wave Rectification.

The voltage across the MM is just the

positive cycle of the sine wave

because of rectifying action of the

diode.

The peak value of the ac sine wave

is :

Wave Rectification.

The FW biased diode will have no

effects in the operations of the circuit.

(ideal diode)

Now, suppose we replace the 10-Vdc

with 10Vrms, what will happen?

dArsonval MM with

Wave Rectification.

The MM will respond to the average

value of sine wave where the

average, or DC value equal to 0.318

times the peak value.

The ave value of the AC sine wave

is :

dArsonval MM with

Wave Rectification.

The diode action produces an

approximately half sine wave across

the load resistor.

The average value of this voltage is

referred to as the DC voltage, which

a DC voltmeter connected across a

load resistor will respond to.

dArsonval MM with

Wave Rectification.

Therefore, we can see that the pointer that

deflected full scale when a 10-V DC signal

was applied, deflects to only 4.5V when we

apply a 10-Vrms sine AC waveforms.

Thus, an AC Voltmeter using wave

rectification is only approximately 45%

sensitive as a DC Voltmeter.

dArsonval MM with

Wave Rectification.

In order to have a full scale deflection

meter when a 10-Vrms is applied, we

have to design the meter with the Rs

having 45% of Rs of DC Voltmeter.

Since the equivalent DC voltage is

45% of RMS value, we can write like

this:

Rs= (Edc/Idc)-Rm = (0.45Erms/Idc) -Rm

Wave Rectification.

Example 1

Compute the value of Rs for a 10-Vrms AC range on the

voltmeter shown in Figure 1.

Given that Ein= 10-Vrms, Ifs= 1mA, Rm=300.

Example 2

In the wave rectifier shown below, D1 and D2 have an average

forward resistance of 50 and are assumed to have an infinite

resistance in reverse biased. Calculate the following:

(a) Rs value

(b) Sac

(c) Sdc

Given that Ein = 10-Vrms, Rsh = 200, Ifs = 100mA, Rm = 200

Conclusion

dArsonval MM can be used to measure

both DC and AC current/ voltages.

value of sine wave where the average,

or DC value equal to 0.318 times the

peak value.
