Advantages and disadvantages of bridge rectifier

Advantages: Transformer utilization factor, in case of a bridge rectifier, is higher than that of a centre-tap rectifier. It can be used in application allowing floating output terminals, i.e. no output terminal is grounded. The need for

Difference between ordinary rectifier and controlled rectifier

Ordinary rectifier Controlled rectifier The triggering circuit is not required in ordinary rectifier The triggering circuit is required in controlled rectifier. Only diodes are used in ordinary rectifier. The SCR and diodes are used in controlled rectifier.

Difference between single phase rectifier and three phase rectifier

Following are the difference between single phase rectifier and three phase rectifier : Single phase rectifier Three phase rectifier Single phase rectifier delivered small amount of power to the load. Three phase rectifier delivered large amount of power

Advantages and applications of polyphase rectifiers

There are some advantages of polyphase rectifiers which are given below, It has a  large amount of power, usually greater than 2 kW. Its efficiency is greater than as compared to single phase rectifier. The ripple factor
