Analysis of Three-Phase Bridge Rectifier Circuit: Voltage, Power, and Current Calculations

a) A three phase bridge rectifier is used to supply a load. The applied line voltage is 440 V at 60 Hz; the resistive load is assisted by an inductor to smooth the current so that the dc load current of 700 A is flat without noticeable ripple.
Draw a circuit diagram of the system [3 marks] and calculate:
