Simulation Study of Harmonics and Reactive Power in Three-Phase Full-Bridge Controlled Rectifier Circuit with Resistance-Inductance Load
In order to evaluate the harm and impact of power electronic devices on the grid and provide numerical basis for specific design of the corresponding compensated devices, the harmonics and reactive power of three-phase full-bridge controlled rectifier circuit with resistance-inductance load are studied in this paper. Firstly, the harmonics and power factor of the ac side current are analyzed theoretically; the harmonics contents and power factor are calculated. Secondly, the model of three-phase full-bridge controlled rectifier circuit is built in Matlab/Simulink, and the simulation analysis of the ac side power factor and harmonics is achieved, the simulated values are similar to the theoretical values. The results show that the complex calculations of harmonics and power factor can be completed simply and intuitively using simulation study, the simulation study is efficient and accurate.
