Three Phase Full Converters (H.Rashid):

3-Φ Full converters are used in industrial applications upto 120 kw level, where two quadrant operation is required.

Consider the 3-Φ full converter (figure 4-9a), with a highly inductive load.

The thyristors are fired at an interval of

The frequency of output voltage is 6 f s & the filtering requirement is less than that of three phase semi converter and half wave converters.

At ω t = (

) ≤ωt≤( ) , thyristor T 1 & T 6 is conducts and the line-toDuring the period ω t = ( line voltage V ab (= V an – V bn) appears across the load.

At ω t = (

T 6 is turned off due to natural commutation.

During the interval (

/ 3.

) thyristor T 6 is already conducting and thyristor T 1 is turned on.

) thyristor T 2 is fired and thyristor T 6 is reversed biased immediately.

) ≤ωt≤ (

) , thyristors T 1 & T 2 conduct and the line-to-line

voltage V a c appears across the load. 

If the thyristors are numbered as (fig: 4-9 a), the firing sequence is 12, 23, 34, 45, 56 and 61.

Figure 4-9 b shows the wave forms for input voltage, output voltage, input current and the currents through the thyristors.

Example 4 – 8 (H.Rashid): A 3-phase Full converter (figure 4-9 a) is operated from a 3-Phase Y-connected 208 v, 60 Hz supply and the load resistance is of R = 10 Ω. It is required to obtain an average output voltage of 50 % of the maximum possible voltage. Calculate; (i). The delay angle = ? (ii). R.m.s & average output currents ? (iii). R.m.s & average Thyristor currents ? (iv). Rectification efficiency ? (v). T.U.F ? (vi). Input power factor ? Solution: From the given data, the Phase voltage is obtained as; V S = 208 /√

=>

V S = 120.1 v

So that V m can be obtained as; V

The average output voltage can be obtained as; V n = Vdc / Vd m So that from the given condition of problem; V n = 0.5 V n = Vdc / Vd m (a).

P O = (15.93) 2 x 10
