AC-DC converter

AC-DC converter
The circuit in the diagram converts a sinusoidal alternating voltage into a direct voltage equal to the r.m.s. value of the input voltage. What makes the circuit special is that this conversion, that is, rectification, averaging and buffering, is effected by only two op amps. The usual circuits for this kind of conversion are generally much more complex.
