Single- Phase Line- Commutated Diode Bridge Rectifiers


Output Capacitor / Ohmic Load

The left-hand applet shows the time-behavior of characteristic currents and voltages of the diode bridge rectifier. Drag the vertical red time-marker with the mouse. The corresponding current paths are animated in the right-hand power-circuit applet.

Click on the upper side of the output capacitor (shown in red) in the power circuit applet and keep the mouse-button pressed to increase the capacitance. Click on the lower side of the red capacitor and keep the mouse-button pressed to reduce the capacitance.
