Most modern precipitator installations are invariably energised from mains fre quency rectified equipment utilising the latest electrical and electronic components as described in Chapter 5. Generally the transformer input conditions are controlled by anti-parallel connected thyristors/silicon controlled rectifiers, which in turn are controlled by some form of microprocessor based automatic voltage control (AVC) system. Although the supply is generally a fully rectified voltage, many modern equipment designs have the facility of intermittent ener gisation to cater for specific fly ash conditions, or for power saving while meeting a target emission. The basic operating characteristics of a mains frequency rec tified power supply and the types of control will be examined in the following sections.
