1 CH.4 Full-wave and Three- phase rectifiers (Converting AC to DC) 4-1 Introduction  The average current in AC source is zero in the full-wave rectifier, thus avoiding problems associated with nonzero average source currents, particularly in transformers.  The output of the full-wave rectifier has inherently less ripple than the half-wave rectifier.  Uncontrolled and controlled single-phase and three- phase full-wave converters used as rectifiers are analyzed.

5 Resistive load : power absorbed by the load resistor : power factor : Pf=1

6 R-L load : Fig.4-3

7 If L is relatively large, the load current is essentially dc. ( ) Source harmonics are rich in the odd-numbered harmonics. Filters : reducing the harmonics.

8 R-L source load : Fig.4-5

9 For continuous current operation, the only modification to the analysis that was done for R-L load is in the dc term of the Fourier series.The dc component of current in this circuit is. The sinusoidal terms in the Fourier analysis are unchanged by the dc source, provided that the current is continuous. Discontinuous current is analyzed like section 3-5.

10 Capacitance output filter: Fig. 4-6

11 Assuming ideal diodes : the angle where the diodes become reverse biased, which is the same as for the half-wave rectifier and is = ?  solved numerically for Peak-to-peak variation(ripple) :

12 In practical circuits where ω RC, minimal output voltage occurs at is half that of the half-wave rectifier.

14 L-C filtered output : Fig.4-8 C holds the output voltage at a constant level, and the L smoothes the current from rectifier and reduces the peak current in diodes.

15 Continuous Current : =0, full-wave rectified The variation in can be estimate from the first Ac term (n=2) in the Fourier series. The amplitude of the inductor current for n=2 is where For Continuous current, 

25 R-L Source load : Fig.4-14 The SCRS may be turned on at any time that they are forward biased, which is at an angle

26 For continuous current case, the average bridge output voltage is average load current is The ac voltage terms are unchanged from the controlled rectifier with an R-L load. The ac current terms are determined from circuit. Power absorbed by the dc voltage is Power absorbed by resistor in the load is

28  rectifier operation  inverter operation For inverter operation, power is supplied by the dc source, and power is absorbed by the bridge and is transferred to the ac system.  Vdc and Vo must be negative

31 上、下半部 Diode ,每次僅一個 ON ;同相上、下 Diode 不可同時 ON ; Diode ON 由瞬間最大線電壓決定。 A transition of the highest line-to-line voltage must take place every. Because of the six transitions that occur for each period of the source voltage, the circuit is called a six-pulse rectifier. vo(t) 之基頻為 3 電源頻率之 6 倍 Diode turn on in the sequence 1,2,3,4,5,6,1,..

32 Each diode conducts one-third of the time, resulting in Apparent power from the three-phase source is

33 Since the output voltage is periodic with period 1/6 of the ac supply voltage, the harmonics in the output are of order 6kω, k=1,2,3,… Adevantage : output is inherently like a dc voltage, and the high- frequency low-amplitude harmonics enable filters to be effective.

34 For a dc load current (constant I0) --- Fig4.17

35 which consists of terms at fundamental frequency of the ac system and harmonics of order 6k 1, k=1,2,3, … Filters(Fig.4-18) are frequently necessary to prevent harmonic currents to enter the ac system. Resonant filters for 5th and 7th harmonics. High-pass filters for higher order harmonics.

37 Harmonics for output voltage remain of order 6k, but amplitude are functions of.  seeing Fig. 4-20


39 Twelve-pulse rectifiers : using two six-pulse bridges

40 The purpose of the transformer connection is to introduce phase shift between the source and bridge. This results in inputs to two bridges which are apart. The two bridge outputs are similar, but also shifted by. The delay angles for the bridge are typically the same. The peak output of the twelve-pulse converter occurs midway between alternate peaks of the six-pulse converters. Adding the voltages at that point for gives

41 Since a transition between conducting SCRs every, there are a total of 12 such transitions for each period of the ac source. The output has harmonic frequencies which are multiple of 12 times the source fre. (12k k=1,2,…) Cancellation of harmonics 6(2n-1) 1, n=1, 2, … has resulted from this transformer and converter configuration.

42 This principle can be expanded to arrangements of higher pulse number by incorporating increased number of six-pulse converters with transformers which have the appropriate phase shifts. The characteristic ac harmonics of a p-pulse converter will be pk 1, k=1,2,3…  More expense for producing high-voltage transformers with the appropriate phase shifts.

44 The bridge output voltage Vo must be negative.

45 4-6 DC power transmission ․ By using controlled twelve-pulse converter (generally). ․ Used for very long distances of transmission lines. Advantages : (1), voltage drop↓ in lines (2), line loss ( (3) Two conductors required rather than three (4) Transmission towers are smaller. (5 ) Power flow in a dc transmission line is controllable by adjustment of delay angles at the terminals. (6) Power flow can be modulated during disturbances on one of the ac system.  System stability increased. (7) The two ac systems that are connected by the dc line do not need to be in synchronization. ) Disadvantages : costly ac-dc converter, filter, and control system required at each end of the line to interface with the ac system.
