Consider a full-wave single-phase bridge rectifier circuit with dc motor load, as shown in Figure P16.1.4(a). Let the transformer turns ratio be unity. Let the load be such that the motor draws a ripple free armature current of Ia. Given the waveforms for the input current and input voltage of the rectifier, as in Figure P16.1.4(b), determine: (i) harmonic factor HF of the input current, and (ii) input power factor PF of the rectifier.
