In this chapter, the various topologies of single-phase controlled rectifier are presented. In the first part of the chapter, topologies pertaining to low switching frequency such as half-wave, biphase, and full-wave rectifier with source inductance are presented. In the later parts, the various concepts and topologies pertaining to active rectification are presented. The performance issues pertaining to input currents, power factor, and commutation problems in control rectifier are addressed. The various topologies of unity-power-factor rectifiers, synchronous rectifiers, and rectifier ...
