One aspect that I had not considered was the time period where the positive or negative diode pair were being forward-biased before the diodes begin to conduct. No doubt this it the reason for the harmonics and the non-linear nature of rectification. I imagine this was not much of a problem before the home computer revolution and the growth of fluorescent lighting.

wow, the thread is still going strong. All I am saying and I don't know call me simple, is that when he wired up the 2nd or 3rd motor, I lost count, straight from out of the box with nothing on it. Fired it up, it was drawing higher amps than Full Load Amps.
Something is wrong.
And it has nothing to do with fan curves, static pressure, delta t's, humidity, heat, racism, sexuality, sexual orientation, drugs, world social order etc ect ect ect.

In a sea of technicians (and technician accessories, ie: managers and dispatchers and what not), I think Mongo and me has the right attitude. Can't take it all so seriously
