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

  1. A 3-phase rectification circuit comprises 6 rectifiers.
  2. Three transformers are linked separately to the mains supply, each out of phase by 120°.
  3. As voltage from one transformer starts to drop, the current is boosted by the other two.
  4. This set-up results in almost constant voltage from cathode (C) to anode (A) across the tube head.
