You have added MS/PE to your signature, big deal. Just because you're
registered doesn't make you correct.
You have made my day though. The "legal reference" part had me in stitches.
I feel no need to flout any degrees, registrations, or certifications
to try to prove a point.
A technical statement needs to stand on it's own merits, not that of some
piece of paper the speaker may have.
As an aside, the most incompetent EE I ever had working for me was registered
and the most competent was self taught with no degree what so ever.
Sorry, I'm not impressed with just the ability to pass a government test.

You seem to have a problem understanding that a rectifier is NOT a
A diode is a rectifier. Diodes are not reactive.
To be precise, there is some small junction capacitance, but that's
negligable at power frequencies.
All the reactive components are in the supply to the rectifier and/or the
filter after the rectifier.
And before you even think about throwing out the red herring, you could say
a MG set run on AC that puts out DC is a "rectifier" under the classical
definition, but those around you would just smile politely and walk away
shaking their heads.

"Hey, look at my PE, I'm right" isn't a technical response. I've yet
to see a direct technical response from you; ad hominem, yes, redirection,
yes, direct technical, no.
