Published on: 25/08/2016
GD Rectifiers’ engineers are experts in designing high quality and high reliability power assemblies for applications where optimised performance is required. Today, power assemblies are used in all industrial power applications for various purposes.
Solid state semiconductor technology used in power assemblies provide GD Rectifiers’ customers with standard and custom design solutions for most industrial power applications.
From the traditional fields such as high powered high voltage rectifiers for charging, resistance welding, plating, heating, lighting, cathodic protection, magnetic supplies, pulse power, through frequency control, variable speed drives, choppers, inverters, to modern day green energy saving applications such as, wind, solar, and tidal energy.
GD Rectifiers have solutions covering all popular configurations in the most extensive of power ranges. They stock a range of power assemblies devices from some of the world’s best manufacturers, including IXYS, IXYS UK Westcode and SEMIKRON.
Common applications include, AC drives, DC drives, Bridges, Regulators, Soft Starts, Energy Optimizers, Telecommunications, UPS, and SMPS.
Types of Power Assemblies
Single Phase Assemblies
GD Rectifiers offer a complete a range of Single Phase Rectifier Assemblies built using combinations of power semiconductors (thyristors, diodes or modules) mounted on to heat sinks and connected as single phase bridges. In addition to their standard range of rectifier assemblies they also manufacture custom-made assemblies using power semiconductors from IXYS, IXYS UK Westcode and SEMIKRON.
The topologies depicted in our datasheet are generally the most popular, however others can be supported if required.
Three Phase Assemblies
GD Rectifiers designs and manufactures an extensive range of Three Phase Assemblies, typical applications include Cathodic protection, Ground Power Units, Helicopter Starters, HVAC, Motor Control and Railway. They also manufacture custom-made assemblies using power semiconductors from IXYS, IXYS UK Westcode and SEMIKRON.
GD Rectifiers designs and manufactures a comprehensive range of Hexaphase Assemblies, typical applications include: high power installations, rectifiers, DC power supplies and plating.
