### RC Phase Shift Control

• Figure A shows circuit for the RC phase shift control.
• It consists of one step down transformer which consists of center taped secondary winding
• The RC circuit is connected in series with transformer secondary winding.
• The voltage drop across R is ad = IR and voltage drop across capacitor is bd = IXC
• The voltage drop across cd is given to the gate – cathode terminal of the SCR
• There should be phase difference Ф between anode voltage and gate voltage.
• As the variable resistance changes, the voltage drop across bd changes. Figure B shows vector diagram for RC phase shift circuit.
ab = Voltage drop across transformer secondary winding
bd = Voltage drop across capacitor
ad = Voltage drop across resistor
As the center tapping transformer ac = cb
tan α = ad / bd
= IR / IXC
α = tan-1 ( ωRC )
As ac = cb, the angle Ф = 2α
Ф = 2 tan-1 ( ωRC )
