Tom Scott : Never thought I'd inspire an ElectroBOOM video. Thanks for the shoutout!

bigclivedotcom : For isolation, some of the high voltage semiconductor components use optically triggered gates with fiber optics leading to the control circuits. But I bet they still go bang in a very expensive way.

Official zennacko : My reactions to this video: 6:22 You can feel it coming... 7:43 It's. almost. here. 8:22 IT'S HERE. FULL BRIDGE RECTIFIER!!!!!!! But that won't be enough for this video, we need something more powerful, more phases, more rectification, we need... 9:19 A THREE PHASE, EVEN FULLER BRIDGE RECTIFIER!!!! What? It's like Goku got a new super power and it's still not enough? OK, here's the "Genki Dama of rectifiers": Puny mortals, behold... 10:27 THE MOTHER OF ALL FULLEST BRIDGE RECTIFIERS!!!!! It's not your pedestrian Full Bridge, and can't be compared to the Even Fuller Bridge Rectifier, THIS IS THE MOTHER OF ALL OF THEM! It's not a peasant three phase, this one handles SIX... SIX PHASE MOTHER OF ALL FULLEST BRIDGE RECTIFIERS! - Mankind went too far... or is there a twelve phase god of all fullest bridge rectifiers and Mehdi is holding back on this secret?

Not Jin : Never thought I’d live to see a EVEN FULLER BRIDGE RECTIFIER

Reckless Roges : EB makes a video hinting at vindication for Edison and accidentally wakes the Tesla cult, releasing a Cthulhu of comments.

Pesterenan : I laughed a lot at the *M.A.F.B.R.* hahaahaha

Jan Veselý : 2:45 The osciloscope shows some noise every time Mehdi leans over it. Why is that?

Aaron Huggins : Came for the high voltage DC. Stayed for the full bridge rectifier.

Mr. Dragon : 7:12 “you see mike here in his natural habitat” lol that was funny to hear.

science to technology : wont you get square wave if simple diode method is used, in sine wave inverter we use IGBT with PWM signal to make Pure sine wave(How would one use filter to make sine wave from square ) . How does that phase shift transformer works & would it be possible to phase shift the generator it self as many power plants have more that 1 generator some even have 3 units which could allow 9 phase and reduce the size of capacitor needed to reduce ripple in the DC .

5thString : Hi, my name is John. Life felt empty and drab until I discovered full bridge rectifiers, now I can't imagine my life without them, thanks electroBOOM!!!

Mundo da Elétrica : What a video man!

Jamie Moorcroft : to be honest as funny as they are ive learnt so much from this channel and im now studying electrical design and engineering so thankyou so much

souhaibz : I am an electrical power engineer working for Siemens' HVDC division and your video is brillant in explaining the ground level basics... Thanks

A : He just summarized half my electrical degree in under 15 minutes 😂😂😂

Jens Andree : A long time ago here in Sweden they tried to distribute domestic DC in a few large cities (or perhaps just Stockhom?) but since DC is really prone to jump in order to create shorter paths - and the gas lines were running next to the DC lines, the results were less than impressive when enough jumps from DC lines to gas lines had eaten small holes in the gas lines and things started going boom a bit here and there... Lesson learned - DC ain't the same as AC - especially when it can jump over to other metal parts trying to find a shorter path ;)

vanhelsing654 : shouldn't it be a 60 degrees phase shift instead of a 30 degrees one. for the 6 phase AC because, original 3 phase 120+120+120 = 360 degrees new 6 phase 60+60+60+60+60+60 = 360 degrees a 12 phase AC would be 30+30+30+30+30+30+30+30+30+30+30+30 = 360 degrees

Jammit Timmaj : Another problem with HVDC is that AC is self commutating. If you happen to get an arc drawn on an AC line, the arc will continue until the AC voltage drops to zero. With zero (or close enough to zero) voltage the arc self extinguishes. With HVDC, once an arc has started, it keeps going until something blows because the DC never goes to zero.

dfgdfg : Cult classic, not bestseller, you're gonna need more power Plug in the three phase and the generator, crank it up to the gigawatts Critics, ready with your pot shots, the plot thickens Put on your mittens for these sub-zero conditions

avi12 : 11:22 I love how he says "kittens" instead of "pussies"


nyer070 : من از شما بسیاد ممنونم بابت ویدیوهای بسیار جذابتون و همچنین به اینکه صادق هستی و به ایرانی بودنت افتخار می کنی. ما خانوادگی شیفته شما هستیم و هر وقت اپلود می کنین ما در جا تماشا می کنیم. امیدوارم خانواده گلت همیشه سرافراز و تندرست باشید. به امید ایران ازاد.

Zuulaloo : I know the answer to this, but why not just use the ESC as your 3 phase source?

vaibhav pal : At 7:05 "10kv 100kv or million volt" well it is already running commercially at 800kv here in India and it is also eco friendly and economically viable.

Master Gamer404 : 10:29 THE MOTHER OF ALL RECTIFIERS, what shirt will come out of this?

Hossein Ebrahimi : In this video you can find out Why america won't attack iran 'cause an iranian doesn't care; he's like a honey badger You might be afraid to touch a live wire with a tester, he washes his carpet on the roof and dries it for a day on the high voltage power lines😀😀😀

FUNNY CHANEL : 9:21 Even fuller bridge rectifier

omar oyt : 10:54 did you just assume his gender?

SAURAV OFFICIAL : hey i am waiting for new video but you are not uploading. please upload fast and u have a very nice video and i always learn much from your video i like it

DrGoogle : Rule number one, never use Headphones while watching an electroBOOM Video...

INVENTO LABS : Hello mehdi sadaghdar, is nice to see u again,,, ' burning your self ' ha it's awesome

aiandenk : can you make experiment to replace DC with AC in a little device like a computer ?

Robert Reitze : This video is gold!!!

Devansh gupta : Complex numbers🤦

Iustin : Level 1: 8:23 Level 2: 9:21 Level 3: 10:30

ムIG ™ : Even Fuller Bridge rectifier

Goku17yen : Great animations

Marcos Pimentel : Make an improved version of the voltage multiplier!

Vince Sanity : Even Full Bride Rectifier WTF

no u : If you see Medhi with capacitor, be ready for explosions.

Hello Friend : Salam medhi. Fameedam irane hastee. Ay metoone een o befame give me a like.

Mario : What happens if you stick a knife in a toaster Is this lethal?

olivia-J Trans : You mis-pronounce 'kilometer'.

David Farah : There is always an explosion at the first try


Angelo Nicolas : Best intro ever (hi) ^-^

BigZ7337 : Huh, this video never showed up in my emails even though I smashed that bell awhile ago. Weird.

olivia-J Trans : back then it wasn't 120 V

RC Flo : Crazy

Anzal MB aka [MG] Me : Graduated from the same school 😂
