Phase Controlled Single Phase Half Wave Rectifier

on 24/2/2012 & Updated on Saturday 16th of June 2018 at 09:33:33 AM
The Phase controlled Single Phase Half Wave Rectifier is shown in the figure below. An AC source of 220 V, 50 Hz is connected to a Thyristor, THY1, which is triggered at an angle of 0°. The current through the load, I1, is measured by an ammeter and the voltage across the load, VP1, is measured using a voltmeter. The load is purely resistive of value 10 Ω.
