    Purpose of a rectifier in a positive oscillating circuit

    Hello, I found a circuit (transmitter) design that would create an oscillating magnetic field. Another circuit (receiver) would pick the induced voltage up and amplify it. Now as I understand it, the oscillating part has only positive voltage. But in the receiver part they use a recitfier. Why...

    Help with basic piezoelectric generator circuit design

    Hello, I want to experiment with the properties of piezoelectric generator devices. I am looking to get a few PZT devices where I can stress / impact the material to produce current. I have concept to use multiple PZT devices where they will be stressed simultaneously. The PZT devices output a...
