Six-phase converters

High-power converters don't use single-phase supplies. Three-phase rectifiers with a balanced load on each phase do not generate triplen harmonics (3rd, 9th, 15th, etc) at their power inputs.

It is possible to use an input transformer with both star and delta secondaries to achieve a ...
