Single phase uncontrolled full bridge rectifier supplying R-L-E Load -Input Current waveform
Input current Waveform:
The exact analytical expression for i0can be written as:
The general solutionis written as:
- When the parameters of the load R,L,E are such that the equation of the condition for continuous conduction doesn’t satisfy such that the left side of the equation is less than the right side of the equation then the rectifier becomes discontinuous i.e. the load current becomes zero for a part of the i/p cycle.
