Tech/Engineering - Electronics / Elect Eng / Power plant
English term or phrase: control pulse unit (rectifier)
System : control pulse unit (rectifier)
Check of wiring to and from the unit.

From a list describing the maintenance to be carried out on the various parts and system of a power plant.
Unfortunately the list does not give the actual name of the specific parts involved as it is listed by numbers.

Thanks for your help.

Vous trouverez sans peine aucune "générateur d'impulsions", "impulsions de contrôle", "redresseur contrôlé". Étant donné la manière dont l'anglais présente les choses...

neutral  Tony M: Possibly, but it may not necessarily be the 'unit' that actually generates these pulses (might be receiving them, for example) — in fact, I suspect it may be control pulse insertion
