Class F Commutation ( Line commutation or AC commutation )

    • The class F commutation is also called as line or natural commutation because the SCR is turned off automatically during negative cycle of alternating supply. 
    • There are no commutating components used in this method therefore it is not called as forced commutation method.
    • The time duration for the negative half cycle must be greater than the SCR specific turned off time as per data sheet. 
    • Figure A shows the circuit for the Class F commutation. 
    • This method is applicable only for alternating supply
    • This method is used in the line commutator rectifiers, inverters and cyclo – converters.
