A rectifier converts AC voltage into DC voltage. In this application also, the transformer is specifically developed for the rectifying unit to which it is destined.
The conversion group can have different configurations (three-phase bridge, six-phase with or without interphasic reactor, twelve-phase, and so on) and each of them requires the design of a dedicated transformer. Rectifiers are generally used for special industrial applications, mainly destined to galvanic plants (chrome-plating, zinc-plating, etc.).
This kind of use requires extremely high currents (very often, thousands of Amps are necessary).
ORTEA’s technical department skills and competence allow for studying the best solution for the critical issue given by the output bar configuration.
