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 […]

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. […]
