Abstract As the import and export cargos across the world increase with global trade environments, the ecocide caused lots of small marine organisms in the ship's ballast water is a big issue. The implementation of the BWTS (Ballast water treatment system) thus needs low-voltage high-current rectifier for electrolytic disinfection. So this paper proposes a suitable high-current inverter-type rectifier for electrolytic disinfection of seawater and analyzes its output characteristics. It also suggests the practical design guidelines for the proposed rectifier in terms of power circuit and controller designs.
