1.4.2 Mixing single and three phase diode rectifier

The other technique, based on mixing single and three-phase non-linear loads, gives a reduced THD because the 5th and 7th harmonic current of a single-phase diode rectifier often are in counter-phase with the 5th and 7th harmonic current of a three-phase diode rectifier .

PWM Rectifier

The most interesting reduction technique of current harmonic is a PWM (active) rectifier (Fig. 1.3). Two types of PWM converters, with a voltage source output (Fig. 1.4) and a current source output (Fig. 1.5) can be used.

Traditional harmonic reduction technique

The traditional method of current harmonic reduction involves passive filters LC, parallel-connected to the grid. Filters are usually constructed as series-connected legs of capacitors and chokes [the number of legs depends on number of filtered harmonics (5th, 7th, 11th, 13th) ].
