13. Smart Washer Machine Sdn. Bhd. intended to design new model of washer machine for Malaysian market. This washer machine use DC motor for washing operation. The rating of DC motor is 240 V, 600 W with very small value of inductance and could operate at high ripple power condition. Sketch the power circuit of the washer machine and calculate the value of Vave, Vrms, Iave, Irms. To improve the performance of the DC motor, the power supply should have a minimum ripple.
