Radiography: x-ray machine circuit - 3-phase rectification current

  1. In a 3-phase rectification circuit current flows continuously from 3 sources which are slightly out of phase.
  2. As current from one source is dropping to zero, current from the other sources is around its peak.
  3. This effectively smooths current flow across the tube head and permits a more reproducible exposure at short exposure times.
