AC-DC rectifier: float, equalization voltage, regulation, and control

AC-DC rectifier

Here we will study some of the general features you should be familiar with regarding AC-DC rectifier. This includes float and equalization, regulation, and their control for telecommunications applications. You will learn everything you need to know about the operation of rectifiers and their voltage control. As you can imagine, these devices are crucial as […]

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 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 […]
