Single Phase Full Wave Controlled rectifier
The single phase half wave controlled rectifier produce only one pulse of load current during one cycle of supply voltage. It also introduces a dc component into the supply line which is undesirable because it leads to saturation of the supply transformer and harmonics etc. The disadvantages of 1-? half wave converters are minimized by the use of 1-? full wave converters. This can be configured by two basic type circuit midpoint type and bridge type.
