Xray Imaging System

What component supplies the high voltage generator with the voltage it needs to provide the kVP set by the radiographer autotransformer
What is the approximate voltage ripple of a 3-phase, 12 pulse power 4%
The condition in which the voltage is not allowed to swing negatively during the negative half of its cycle defines half-wave rectification
Which type of exposure timer is used in xray systems equipped with falling load generators mAs
The electronic device that allows current to flow in only one direction is a rectifier
If the current is increased at the filament in order to allow the electrons to be released to the anode, what happens the number of turns decreases from the primary to the secondary, voltage is decreased, current is increased
