Why use thyristors in high power rectifiers?
Power grid networks deliver electricity as AC (Alternating Current), but some key applications, such as electric vehicle battery charging and Light Rail transport systems, require DC (Direct Current) for economic and efficient operation. For example, standard Rail DC voltage systems operate across Europe, nominally at 600V, 750V, 1500V and
