A new self-commutated AC–DC converter is proposed based on the reinjection of multilevel DC pulses via the mid-point of the series double-bridge converter using a GTO-switched multitapped single-phase transformer. The ideal reinjection waveform for complete elimination of the harmonic content of the AC-side current is derived and a practical approximation proposed to increase the pulse number of double-bridge converters to any multiple of 12. A 60-pulse configuration is analysed in detail to show effectiveness on both the AC and DC sides of the converter.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
