In order to obtain controlled output voltage, phase controlled thyristors are used instead of diodes. The output voltage of thyristor rectifier is varied by controlling the delayor firing angle of the thyristors. A phase controlled thyristor is turned-on by applying a short pulse to its gate and turned-off due to natural or line commutation and in case of a highly inductive load it is turned-off by firing another thyristor of the rectifier during the negative half cycle of the input voltage. A 3-Phase controlled rectifiers are simple and less expensive and the efficiency of these rectifiers are in general above 95 %. These are extensively used in industrial purposes especially in variable speed drives ranging from fractional horse power to mega watt power levels. The phase controlled rectifiers can be classified into two types, depending upon the type of input voltage; 1. Single phase converters. 2. Three phase converters. Each type can be sub-divided into; a). Semi converter: A semi converter is one quadrant converter and it has one polarity of the output voltage and current.

b).

Full converter: A Full converter is a two quadrant converter and the polarity of its output voltage can be either positive or negative. However the output current of full converter has one polarity.

c).

Dual converter: A Dual converter can operate in four quadrant’s and both the output voltage & current can be either positive or negative.

Note: in some applications converters are connected in series to operate at higher voltages and to improve the input power factor.
