This paper presents the application of zero-current switching in a three-phase rectification scheme with nearly sinusoidal line currents. The principle of third harmonic current circulation is used to reduce the distortion in the line currents. Zero-current switching is accomplished with the use of only two switches. The operation of the circuit is verified experimentally. Comparisons with a PWM based rectifier and a six-switch rectifier in terms of component stresses and EMI filter considerations are presented.
