High-frequency controlled regulation AC-DC rectifiers

rectifier high-frequency controlled regulation

In the conversion of AC to DC power, the typical operating frequency is that of the AC line or multiples thereof. AC-DC rectifiers with high-frequency controlled regulation leverage this type of control to enhance their performance. Indeed, if the operating frequency is increased to the order of thousands of Hertz, power circuits can be downsized. […]

AC-DC rectifier unit with ferroresonant regulation

AC-DC rectifier unit

AC-DC rectifier unit are the most crucial components of the power system for telecommunications. They are responsible for converting alternating current into direct current for use by telecommunications equipment. This energy must be stable and regulated to ensure that all its parameters remain constant despite fluctuations in the electrical grid and loads. This stability is […]

AC DC rectifiers with thyristor regulation

thyristor-regulated rectifier

The AC-DC rectifier with thyristor regulation is the oldest type used in telecommunications. It is known for its reliability and robustness, and this technology is the simplest. However, these devices are quite bulky. For instance, a 100 A rectifier can be as tall as 2 meters by 80 cm wide and very heavy. Before we […]

Controlled and uncontrolled AC-DC rectifiers

controlled and uncontrolled rectifiers

AC-DC rectifiers are widely used in power systems for telecommunications, converting AC energy into DC. In this post titled Controlled and uncontrolled ac-dc rectifiers, we will explore the two types of conversion. This conversion, technically termed wave rectification, involves eliminating the alternation in the alternating current signal and delivering a linear signal of constant value. […]
