The half wave rectifier with a capacitor filter circuit is a typically non-linear case of study. It requires a hard work to solve it on analytic form. The main reason is due to the fact that the output voltage comes alternatively from the source and from the capacitor. This study describes a novel intelligent model to obtain the time when the changes of the sources occur. For the operation range, a large set of work points are calculated to create the dataset. To achieve the final solution, several simple regression methods have been tested. The novel model is verified empirically by using CAD software to simulate electronic circuits and by analytical methods. The novel model allows to obtain good results in all the operating range.
