Advantage of a controlled system: Money savings from the first load—No or less over anodizing, less manpower, less maintenance. Q: What does output Ripple of a rectifier mean and how can I measure it? A: The output Ripple of a rectifier is a fluctuation of the output DC Voltage of that rectifier. Technically speaking it is an AC (Alternating Current) component superposed on a DC (Direct Current) voltage. Different types of rectifiers will behave differently as far as the output Ripple is concerned depending on the application and settings. When we talk about Ripple in percentages we are talking about the amount of fluctuation of the output voltage. This Ripple can be calculated by dividing the RMS voltage of the AC component by the average value of the DC output voltage, then multiplying the result times 100%.
