# Kimbark's Average Current Calculator

The Average value of AC or alternating current is expressed by that DC current, which transfers across any point of the circuit the same charge as is transferred by the AC current for the same time. This Calculator calculates the Average Current of a Three Phase Rectifier.

The Three-Phase Average-Value Rectifier block replicates a full-wave, six-pulse rectifier with an average value. Three-phase alternating current voltages are converted to direct current voltages, and direct current power demand is converted to three-phase alternating current power demand. The equivalent AC power demand is equal to the sum of the fixed power loss and the DC power demand. Only a six-pulse rectifier may be used with the Average-Value Rectifier (Three-Phase) block. Combining two Average-Value Rectifier blocks cannot represent a twelve-pulse rectifier. The Average-Value Rectifier (Three-Phase) block does not create the harmonics associated with the detailed representation since it performs an average-value power conversion.

The Average value of AC or alternating current is expressed by that DC current, which transfers across any point of the circuit the same charge as is transferred by the AC current for the same time. This Calculator calculates the Average Current of a Three Phase Rectifier with a given Thyristor Trigger Angle.
