Description
In this lab:
R, RC and UJT triggering circuits are done to know how to give and adjust the firing pulse to the SCR so as to make it to conduct. 1-phase semi converter and full converter experiments are carried out to understand the conversion of AC supply to DC supply and the variation of average output voltage for different firing angles. A 1-phase AC voltage controller using TRIAC is done to get the variable AC output voltage from fixed AC input voltage. Voltage and current commutated chopper circuits are carried out to comprehend the conversion of fixed DC to variable DC voltage by voltage commutation and current commutation respectively.
