Three Phase Half Controlled Bridge Converter Rectifier Trainer , Model : TPHB - 303


This system is intended for firing three thyristors and three diode wired to form a half controlled half wave three phase line commutated converter feeding resistive, inductive, or D.C. Motor load. The unit accepts 440V, three phase A.C. main’s input and gives three isolated outputs desired from zero to maximum output voltage. It has inherent synchronizing means incorporated in it, which make it insensitive to phase reversal.

The firing circuit comprises of Zero Crossing Detector (ZCD), Integrator, Comparator, Logic Gates &  Pulse  Amp.  and   Isolation  Transformer.

  • Weight : 6.5 Kg Approximately
  • Dimension : 250mm × 350mm × 150mm 


The 3 phase SCR bridge rectifier consist of firing circuit, power circuit, power supply as under 


The firing module contains the control and firing pulse for SCR and various testing point for firing circuits, block diagram, potentiometers for varying output voltage, R, Y, B & G three phase input terminals and ON/OFF switch with soft start.


The firing module contains the Step down transformer, Miniature circuit breaker (MCB), Firing pulse socket for all SCRs, R, Y B & G terminals and output terminals for connect the load.


Specially designed three phase step down transformer and miniature circuit breaker (MCB)  provided for over current protection with all the three SCR’s used in this module and R & L also provided for loading purpose (Optional).

The following experiments can be performed with this system:

1. To study the operation of 3 phase half bridge controlled rectifier with R load.
2. To study the operation of 3 phase half bridge controlled rectifier with R + L load.

Apparatus Required :

1. Three PhaseFiringModuleBridge Converter,  Model – TPHB – 303.
