Find the commutation time (in ms) for a 3 phase full converter (RLE load) at firing angle 30°. (Answer should be in ms)
A 6pulse thyristor bridge is connected to a balanced 50 Hz , 3  ϕ ac source. Assuming the dc o/p current of the rectifier is constant, the lowest frequency harmonic component of the source line current is
Ripple frequency = 5 x 50 = 250 Hz. Hence the least frequency component is of 250 Hz
The overlap angle of a phase controlled converter will increase if
Among the above statements
With increase in frequency the effective reactance at source increases which increase overlap angle. If supply voltage increases current will take more time to build up through source inductance, hence μ increases. If firing angle increases to maintain constant average current overlap angle will decrease. (observe by putting α=0,30,60 etc)
