Current-Source-Rectifier Topologies for Sinusoidal Supply Current: Theoretical Studies and Analyses Academic Article uri icon


  • For current-source-rectifier (CSR)-based systems, sinusoidal supply current and unity displacement power factor in the utility are achieved through either a pulsewidth-modulation CSR or a phase-controlled rectifier in conjunction with an active filter. This paper investigates theoretical studies and analyses for the two topologies from the standpoint of converter kilovoltampere rating and switch rating. © 2006 IEEE.
