Solution:

The average value can be obtained by
3 x [ 1/2π x Vml sin ωt d(ωt) ] The integration runs from π/6 to 5π/6 as the diode is conducting for 120 degrees each.

Solution:

In a six-pulse rectifier, each diode conducts once every one cycle, 60° x
6 diodes = 360°.

QUESTION: 10

A step-down delta-star transformer, with per-phase turns ration of 5, is fed from a 3-phase, 1100 V, 50 Hz source. The secondary of this transformer through a 3-pulse type rectifier feeds a R load of 10 Ω. Find the maximum value of the load current (phase).

Solution:

Vph = 1100/5 = 220 V (Transformer ratio = 5)
Vmp = √2 x 220 V
Imp = Vmp/R.

QUESTION: 11

A step-down delta-star transformer, with per-phase turns ratio of 5 is fed from a 3-phase 1100 V, 50 Hz source. The secondary of this transformer is connected through a 3-pulse type rectifier, which is feeding feeding an R load. Find the average value of output voltage.

Solution:

Vph = 1100/5 = 220 V (Transformer ratio = 5)
Vmp = √2 x 220 V
Vo = 3√3/2π x Vmp = (√2 x √3 x 3 x 220)/(2 x π).

QUESTION: 12

The circuit shown below is that of a Solution:

A 3-phase, 6-pulse rectifier consists of 6 diodes connected in 3 legs. Two diodes conduct at a time.

QUESTION: 13

A step-down delta-star transformer, with per-phase turns ratio of 5 is fed from a 3-phase 1100 V source. The secondary of this transformer is connected through a 3-pulse type rectifier, which is feeding an R load.
The power delivered to the load is 6839.3 Watts.
The maximum value of the load current is √2 x 22 A.
Fin, the rms value of output voltage Vo (rms)

Solution:

Power delivered to the load (Pdc) = Vo(rms)2/R (i)
Imp = Vmp/R
Therefore, R = Vmp/Imp = (1100 x √2)/(5 x √2 x 22) = 10 Ω
Put R in equation (i) & find the required R.M.S voltage.

QUESTION: 14

From the diode rectifier circuit shown below, with phase sequence R-Y-B, diodes D3 & D5 conduct when Solution:

Which diode will conduct depends on where is it in connected? as in in which phase?. D3’s anode is connected to the R phase, hence it will turn on when R is the most positive.

Solution:

Two diodes conduct at a time, constructing the equivalent circuit with supply, R & replacing the conducting diodes by S.C & non-conducting as O.C, the required value can be found out.

Solution:

Vo = (3√2 x 230)/π = 310.56 V
Draw the battery charging circuit,
Vo = E + (Io x R)
Io = (Vo – E)/R = (310.56 – 240)/8.

QUESTION: 20

A 3-phase bridge rectifier charges a 240-V battery. The rectifier is given a 3-phase 230 V supply. The current limiting resistance in series with the battery is 8 Ω.
Find the power delivered to the battery (Pdc).

Solution:

Vo = (3√2 x 230)/π = 310.56 V
Draw the battery charging circuit,
Vo = E + (Io x R)
