It is a two pulse i.e full wave M2 connection.
In the below shown circuit, considering the load to be purely R load, the thyristor T2 would conduct from ωt =
The bottom winding forward biases the SCR T2 at π, conduction starts after the pulse is given at α & stops when T2 is naturally commutated at 2π.
For a single pulse M2 rectifier with RL load and firing angle α >0°, the value of the inductance L is such that the load current is continuous.
Choose the correct statement.
As mentioned, L is such that the load current is continuous. Hence, it never falls below a predefined positive value.
For the circuit below, the transformer ratio is 1:1 and Vs = Vm sinωt. When T1 is forward biased and is triggered at α than T2 is
When T1 is gated, the other SCR T2 is reversed biased due to the windings so connected.
The circuit turnoff time of M2 type connection is
When T1 is gated, SCR T2 is off from ωt = α to π
Thus t = πα(offtime)/ω
Same can be said when T2 is gated and T2 is off.
Find the expression for the average value of the output voltage for the below given circuit. Consider the load current to be continuous, firing angle = α, transformer ration 1:1 and Vs = Vm sinωt.
As the load current is continues, the voltage is positive from α to π and negative from π to π+α and so on. Thus,
Vavg = 1/Period ∫ Vm sinωt d(ωt)
Where period = π
And the integral runs from α to α+π.
