  • The thyristor bridge rectifier has proven to be a reliable solution regarding control of excitation equipment for synchronous generators. However, in rotating brushless exciters, the diode rectifier is the dominant topology on the shaft. In order to improve the step response of rotating exciters, one could put a thyristor bridge rectifier on the rotating part and control the firing angle remotely from a stationary controller. This paper compares different multiphase configurations of permanent… CONTINUE READING
