More Electric Aircraft concept has been seen as the direction of the next generation for aircraft. This paper describes the major concern of the AC/DC converters in the power conditioning system of the aerospace industry. There are many types of AC/DC converter circuits used in aircraft systems. Some of them use transformer rectifier units, passive or active rectifiers with or without a step-up or step-down converter. Their performances versus the power density is important factor for selection and this paper analyses various circuits for the AC/DC converters used in more electric aircraft.
