single-way rectifier circuit
A circuit in which the current flows in only one direction from each terminal of the alternating-voltage circuit to the rectifier circuit element connected to each terminal.
NOTE The terms "single-way" and "double-way" provide a means for describing the effect of the rectifier circuit on current in the transformer windings connected to rectifier circuits. Most rectifier circuits may be classified into these two general types.
