    The Voltage tripler under the heading-
    Volume III - Semiconductors » DIODES AND RECTIFIERS » Voltage multipliers
    needs a correction in its diagram. The total voltage is supposed top be 15 volts across nodes 0-2 where as it is stated as 10 volts.


    I really found this site very useful.
    It gave me a very good explanation for most of my problems. A better understanding for most of the topics.
    Thank You.

    Hello,

    I think you mean this figure :

    I think you are correct that the total voltage should be 15 Volts.

    Greetings,

    Oh yes That is the one. :)

    Well...can you suggest where should I look for Piecewise linear models?
    I want to understand the topic but I cannot seem to find it any where in the textbook.

    Thankyou.

    Does the revised drawing help the corrective process?

    Yes thanks Bill, it should now be a simple case of replace one with another (dimensions have been maintained).

    Thank you for giving feedback.

    As for your question regarding "Piecewise linear models", may I suggest you post up in the General Electronics Chat forum with your question where more people will get a chance to read it.

    Yes, you're right, thanks for the correction. I would suggest it sounds better if it is "it is" rather "it's"; so the correction would be:

    "Note that it is possible to obtain voltmeter"
