IT HAS long been recognized that the efficiency of a large rectifier unit cannot be accurately determined by input-output power measurements. Errors of measurement may be as great or greater than the losses in high efficiency equipments. These errors are aggravated to an unknown degree by the distortion of current and voltage waveshapes inherent in rectifier operation.
