    i am fully awre how to draw the waveforms of CLIPPERS and CLAMPERS.but i ant to know their practical applications...Where are they used????i am actually 1 year student of electrical engineering...so i want to know their practical approach..nad please discuss any difficult case of CLIPPERS and CLAMPERS...because i found drawing their waveforms easy and effortless!!!!are the as much easy...i found them so!!!!

    I don't know all their current uses, but they used to be a major component in FM, used in leu of a Automatic Gain Control. You cascade amps and clippers and you eventually get a maxed out waveform.

    Another use is to limit an analogue signal to a digital level.

    I ALSO WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ripple factor..can u guide me through this topic...and i want to ask about the averge value of sine wave..is it really zero...and what about its relationship as
    0.318Vmax

    If a sine wave has symmetrical excursions positive and negative, then the average value has to be zero. Measurement is done by using a rectifier circuit to take the absolute value of the sine wave, and then measuring the average or RMS value of the unipolar waveform.

    Take a look at the two links provided to the AAC ebook for information on clippers and clampers.
