AC to DC Output Smoothness Calculator
getcalc.com's Rectifier Ripple Factor Calculator is an online electrical engineering tool to calculate how much percentage of ripple (small periodic wave present in the DC output of a rectifier) contained in the DC output voltage.
Definition & Formula
Ripple Factor is a certain percentage of AC input waves present in the rectifier's DC output, which causes noise in the electrical circuits. It's a dimensionless measurement unit, generally represented in percentage, used to measure how smooth the DC output is.
