  • Input stage improved power factor of three phase diode rectifier using hybrid unidirectional rectifier

    This work describes a method in improving the input current power factor as well as the voltage regulation of a three phase diode rectifier circuit. In this method, a single-switch diode bridge boost-type rectifier in parallel with a pulse width modulation (PWM) three-phase unidirectional boost rectifier are used across the three-phase supply and load. The objective is to obtain a structure capable of providing sinusoidal input currents with low harmonic distortion and dc output voltage regulation. The diode rectifier operates at low frequency and has a higher output power rating. Therefore, the PWM unidirectional rectifier is designed to operate with a small power rating and at a high switching frequency. The rectifier topology conception, principle of operation, control scheme, and simulation are also presented in this paper.

  • The essence of three-phase PFC rectifier systems

    In this paper, three-phase PFC rectifier topologies with sinusoidal input currents and controlled output voltage are derived from known single-phase PFC rectifier systems and/or passive three-phase diode rectifiers. The systems are classified into hybrid and fully active PWM boost-type or buck-type rectifiers, and their functionality and basic control concepts are briefly described. This facilitates the understanding of the operating principle of three-phase PFC rectifiers starting from single-phase systems, and organizes and completes the knowledge base with a new hybrid three-phase buck-type PFC rectifier topology denominated as Swiss Rectifier. In addition, analytical formulas for calculating the current stresses on the power semiconductors of selected topologies are provided, and rectifier systems offering a high potential for industrial applications are comparatively evaluated concerning the semiconductor stresses, the loading and volume of the main passive components, and the DM and CM EMI noise level. Finally, core topics of future research on three-phase PFC rectifier systems are discussed, such as the analysis of novel hybrid buck-type PFC rectifier topologies, the direct input current control of buck-type systems, the multi-objective optimization of PFC rectifier systems concerning efficiency and power density, and the investigation of the system performance sensitivity to semiconductor and passive components technology.

  • Current Shaping in a Hybrid 12-Pulse Rectifier Using a Vienna Rectifier

    This paper presents a hybrid rectifier consisting of a 12-pulse rectifier in parallel with a Vienna rectifier. In the proposed structure, the 12-pulse rectifier supplies the bulk power to the load, whereas the Vienna rectifier shapes the input current to reduce its harmonic distortion. The unidirectional power flow of the Vienna rectifier results in undesirable distortion around the current zero crossing, which deteriorates current shaping in this region. To overcome this problem, besides current shaping, the Vienna rectifier is forced to participate in the active power. In this regard, the share of output power in each rectifier module must be calculated. To shape the input current, the reference current for the Vienna rectifier is generated using instantaneous power theory, and current tracking is carried out using the finite control set model predictive control. A detailed analysis of how to select the output power sharing ratio based on system losses and input current distortion is presented. The theoretical analysis is verified by using simulation and experimental results obtained from a 1 kW laboratory setup.

  • Computation of busbars local electromagnetic force densities connected to 3-pulse rectifier load over a complete cycle

    All power system substations use three phase parallel busbars in the power distribution between loads. These busbars are subjected to electromagnetic forces which may cause their permanent deformation, break of insulating supports and an excess vibrational stresses applied on the busbars. From the factors affect these forces is whether the busbars currents have harmonic content or not. This paper presents an analytical approach from which overall forces and local force densities can be calculation. Busbars currents contain harmonics are used in this approach implementation. These currents are taken from a simulated model of 3-pulse rectifier, which is compared with an experimental model to give well qualitative current values.

  • Research on a novel 12-phase rectifier power generation system and its rectifier-side short circuit fault

    A 12-phase rectifier power generation system with a new type of topology and its rectifier-side short circuit fault are studied. The new type of system has four sets of rectifier devices with two series and two parallel and the traditional system has four sets of rectifier device with four parallels. The difference of DC voltage and DC current in normal operation and rectifier-side fault between them is analyzed. For the rectifier-side short circuit fault under no-load condition, the short circuit current expressions in AC side and DC side are derived, the novel rectifier power system simulation model is established in Matlab/Simulink software environment and rectifier-side short circuit fault simulation is performed. The simulation results accord with the derived expression of the short circuit current.

  • A Novel 24-Pulse Diode Rectifier with an Auxiliary Single-Phase Full-Wave Rectifier at DC Side

    A simple and robust 24-pulse diode rectifier for low-voltage and high-current applications is proposed in this paper. The proposed 24-pulse diode rectifier consists of a conventional four-star 12-pulse diode rectifier and an auxiliary single-phase full-wave rectifier (ASFR) installed at dc side. The low-power (3.4%Po) ASFR extracts two rectangular currents from the modified second-stage interphase transformer and injects a square current into the output of the rectifier system. This modification extends the conventional four-star 12-pulse operation to 24-pulse operation. The proposed 24-pulse rectifier draws near sinusoidal input line currents with the absence of 5th, 7th, 11th, 13th, 17th, and 19th harmonics. The average value of current through the ASFR has only 1.7% of load current, which means the current rating and conduction losses of ASFR are very small. The proposed scheme has low-diode conduction losses, and it is more suitable for low-voltage and large-current applications. Since only an additional ASFR is needed, the proposed scheme is low cost and simple to implement. The detailed analysis for the proposed rectifier is presented, and experimental results are provided to verify the proposed concept.

  • A Diode Bridge Rectifier With Improved Power Quality Using the Capacitive Network

    Widely distributed single-phase power electronic rectifier loads are an increasing source of harmonics in the power distribution system. These harmonics have many well-known adverse impacts on the power system, so it is necessary to improve the power quality of the rectifiers. This paper presents a novel single-phase rectifier in which capacitors are used in parallel with diodes in one leg of the rectifier. A general analytical model of the proposed topology is obtained. The closed-form expressions for the rectifier waveforms are utilized in parameter selection that leads to optimal performance in terms of input current total harmonic distortion (THD). Different topologies of rectifiers are compared in terms of the input voltage, current waveform distortion, output dc voltage ripple, and desired target for the dc output voltage. The proposed topology reduces the THD from 145% in a normal rectifier to 63% while maintaining voltage ripple less than 0.3%. The proposed topology keeps dc bus ripple small while simultaneously providing better THD. The passive components considered for improving harmonic injection are two small capacitors. The additional cost required for the proposed rectifier is low, and the proposed rectifier also has a higher efficiency than the other commonly used diode rectifier topologies.

  • A comparison between silicon carbide based current source rectifier and voltage source rectifier for applications in community DC microgrid

    Community DC microgrid is considered as an efficient solution for providing clean energy for residential areas. Connection of the DC microgrid to the AC utility grid would need a power electronic based rectifier. Voltage Source Rectifier (VSR) and Current Source Rectifier (CSR) are considered as the two options for such application. This study compares the two topologies based on their power density and efficiency. Silicon Carbide (SiC) switches are used for designing the rectifiers to get better power density and efficiency. The close proximity of the rectifier to the residential area requires electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of the rectifier with established standards such as IEC 61000-3-4 and FCC B. This analysis shows that CSR has higher efficiency and higher power density compared to VSR.
