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