Multi pulse converters, Phase shifting transformer, coupled three phase reactors, Bridge Rectifiers, Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).


This paper presents a designed methodology for power electronics, which converts AC into DC voltage with a system of three-phase coupled reactors which secures  consumption of the current. In order to reduce to ripples ,here pure inductor is used from the supply itself. Here eight diode bridge rectifier is also used to get 48 pulses then it will apply to the DC load.This work consists of simulation result, designed topology of a 2-kVA model of 48-pulse converter system. While converting 24 pulse converter to 48 pulse converter the power quality problems like harmonics and Total Harmonic distortion is greatly reduced. The main advantage of this converters is to reduce the consumption of the deformation power.Here  48 pulse diode rectifier with couples three phase reactor is simulated using MATLAB/SIMULINK software.
