For the full-wave rectifier circuit of Fig. 2-43(*a*), let v_S = 120 \sqrt{2} \sin(120πt) \text{V}, R_S = 0.001 Ω, R_L = 5 Ω, and the ideal transformer has a turns ratio of 10:1. Using SPICE methods and assuming ideal diodes, plot the output voltage v_L and diode currents i_{D1} and i_{D2}. Compare the results with predicted values based on the solution of Problem 2.28.

Execution of <Prb2_29.CIR> and use of the Probe feature of PSpice result in the plots of Fig. 2-44 where the peak values of v_L and i_{D1} have been marked.

Based on the results of Problem 2.28, the predicted peak values of v_L and i_{D1} are given by

i_{D1 \max} = \frac{v_{S \max}/n}{R_L} = \frac{120 \sqrt{2}/10}{5} = 3.39 \text{A}

v_{L \max} = \frac{v_{S \max}}{n} \frac{120 \sqrt{2}}{10} = 16.97 \text{V}

The predicted values and the SPICE results are in agreement.
