2 The Controlled Half-wave Rectifier Normal rectifiers are considered as uncontrolled rectifiers.Once the source and load parameters are established, the dc level of the output and power transferred to the load are fixed quantities.A way to control the output is to use SCR instead of diode. Two condition must be met before SCR can conduct:The SCR must be forward biased (VSCR>0)Current must be applied to the gate of SCR
3 Controlled, Half-wave R load A gate signal is applied at t = , where is the delay/firing angle.
4 ExampleDesign a circuit to produce an average voltage of 40V across 100 load resistor from a 120Vrms 60 Hz ac source. Determine the power absorbed by the resistor and the power factor.Briefly describe what happen if the circuit is replaced by diode to produce the same average output.
5 Example (Cont) Solution In such that to achieved 40V average voltage, the delay angle must beIf an uncontrolled diode is used, the average voltage would beThat means, some reducing average resistor to the design must be made. A series resistor or inductor could be added to an uncontrolled rectifier, while controlled rectifier has advantage of not altering the load or introducing the losses
6 Controlled, Half-wave R-L load The analysis of the circuit is very much similar to that of uncontrolled rectifier.
16 For discontinuous current Analysis of the controlled full-wave rectifier operating in the discontinuous current mode is identical to that of the controlled half-wave rectifier, except that the period for the output current is .

The ac current terms are determined from circuit. Power absorbed by the dc voltage isPower absorbed by resistor in the load is
