How much DC voltage when 3phases are rectified

  1. Jul 14, 2009 #1
    Hi,Good day to all.
    If 3 phases(230 volts phase to phase )are rectified (using a bridge rectifier: MEB00806)and no neutral is used ;
    what amount of DC voltage will be obtained(with and without filtration)?
    Thanking you.

    What do you think the answer is? If this is for school work, we cannot just give you the answer. Please post your thoughts and an attempt at the solutions.

    Draw the resultant waveform with no smoothing bearing in mind the 230V is RMS and the peak is higher.
