  • The traditional generating set is usually comprised of a classical, wound-field, salient-pole, or cylindrical rotor synchronous generator, excited by a separate smaller machine, via a rotating, uncontrolled diode rectifier. The effects of the commutation processes of the diode bridge are often overlooked and neglected. However, due to the uncontrolled nature of this process, the rectified voltage available at the main generator's rotor terminals can be significantly lower than the expected… CONTINUE READING
