2.2.3 Limitations MINIMUM DC LINK VOLTAGE
For proper operation of the rectifier, a minimum dc link voltage is needed to obtain undistorted current waveforms. To have a full control of the rectifier, its six diodes must be polarized negatively at all value of ac voltage supply. To keep the diodes blocked, we need to ensure a dc link voltage higher than the peak dc voltage generated by the diodes alone. Theoretically for diode rectifier, the maximum dc output voltage is the peak value of line to line RMS voltage  .

It will be better to select a DC link voltage about 15 20% more than √2

Nevertheless, if there is no line impedance (R = 0Ω , L=0H) we can continue to write the equation

ATTENTION : This is a true definition but doesn’t apply in all situation  . The DC link voltage depends on the PWM method. In our case, we will use a sinusoidal PWM. In this case the maximum reference voltage is Vdc/2 (Figure 2.6  ).
