Design is very close to the diode rectifier SCR rectifier . Because the thyristor rectifier electrical parameters are controlled, so there is no need on-load tap changer and a saturable reactor.
Because the thyristor rectifiers do not contain moving parts, thyristor rectifier systems so maintenance is reduced. Notes a the speed advantages of thyristor rectifier diodes rectifier. During the step in process, thyristor rectifier usually adjust quickly so as to avoid the current. The result is a thyristor overload capability of the system can be designed to be smaller than the diode system.
