You see guys the amp rating is so high as high as 35 amps. How can we reach this kind of amps by just using rectifier diodes????
Can't we use bridge diodes instead??? It seems that bridge diodes have a high current rating even up to 35 amps. Can we use them????
Diodes used in bridge rectifiers don't have the same low threshold as schotkys. They don't need to. They are made for rectifying AC into DC. A premade bridge is just that, four diodes wired into a bridge, and that is useless for this purpose. All you need is diode(s) pointing from + to - accross your motor, not a bridge of four wired into a circle.
