Compare with Definitions

Rectifier

A rectifier is an electrical device that converts alternating current (AC), which periodically reverses direction, to direct current (DC), which flows in only one direction. The reverse operation is performed by the inverter.

Rectifier

An electrical device which converts an alternating current into a direct one by allowing a current to flow through it in one direction only.
