Industrial electrolytic rectifiers work with high currents (in the order of kilo Amps) and very low dc voltage levels (few hundred Volts). The preferred industrial solutions for this type of application are thyristor-based double-bridge and four-star multi-pulse rectifiers. A number of alternative more advanced rectifiers have been recently proposed… CONTINUE READING
