A half wave rectifier allows conduction for only 180%, or half a complete cycle in the case that the diode is ideal, no voltage drop when it is turned on. If the diode is not ideal, then the conduction of rectifier will less than 180%

The conduction happens in less than 180° of the input wave. That's because of the barrier potential.

@fatcat2 180° is a good approximation for all practical purposes

Just like a class B amp $

Why are you bringing a class B amp in the thread?

@Jonathantai may have not considered the actual conduction angle here. That ignorance (not blaming anyone) will lead to difficulties in understanding differences between class B and AB. At least that's my opinion.

What you are saying is completely irrelevant and unnecessary. you amplifier related comments don't belong in this thread at all. If you want to talk about amplifiers, open a new thread.

Why should I? It was an indirect reply. Well, I didn't think that my comment was irrelevant.

Well, considering that this post is about rectifiers, your comments are irrelevant
