Ideal Rectifiers and Their Applications An ideal diode has a transfer function where it would appear as an open circuit in one direction of current flow and a short circuit with zero resistance and no voltage drop in the other direction. However, this is not the case. The voltage-current characteristic of a practical diode appears in Fig. 15-1. In the forward direction, the diode "on voltage" must be reached before the diode exhibits conduction. In the reverse direction, no current will flow until a breakdown voltage is reached, so th…
