Phase controlled rectifier

  1. Nov 3, 2015 #1
    Hello folks,
    Can someone explain me the source current reversal in single phase rectifier having source impedance. I understood the analysis and functionality, but having a hard time understanding the change in current in source impedance from +ve to -ve. How load voltage is zero at this instant?

    Can you posts some example circuits?
