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?

Mundo da Elétrica : What a video man!

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

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

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

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

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

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!!!

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

piece of potato : "graduated from the same school" i died😂😂😂

Abs0lut Zr0 : He just summarized half my electrical degree in under 15 minutes 😂😂😂

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.

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

Chonk Cat : Top 10 Bridge Rectifier in Anime history

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

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

FUNNY CHANEL : 1:49 capacitor blowup

Patrick Star : Hi My dad passed away a couple days ago I think you guys think I’m lying But I’m not lying


Devansh gupta : Complex numbers🤦

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

Tarun Mahajan : What actually happened when current pass through your body. Well by mistake I touched my bathroom geyser(Geyser 1300watt 220volts 50cycle (Hertz) per second) water supply pipe (in/out let) and got shocked, everything happened wthin fraction of seconds. Action then reaction and feeling. I touched my bathroom geyser by mistake and got a perfect experience of electric shock. Then only I understand what happens when current pass through our body. Again I repeat that it happens by mistake. Current(vibration) starts from my finger tip then travel through face -> stomach-> navel -> legs and then stopped on my feet. But in between knees and ankles I experienced current(vibration) for next 10-15 min and this is some thing different for me and totally wired experience. So what I experienced actually what was that for next 10-15min? I mentioned it as current (vibration). But that's was not true. Share your past experiences what actually happens when we get shock like this. Actually I feel current previously but in very small amount like laptop, refrigerator (back/ground/return current) but this is not strong enough to get shocked until and unless any sensitive body part touch to it.

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

Daniel the Big D : Mehdi: ...so that we can use DC all over the place. Edison: AS I ALWAYS INTENDED- Mehdi: GET OUT! *[outro starts]* Me: 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

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


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.

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

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

Eric : Canadian BIAS?

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

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

Mr. Josh : #walkaway 😎 great vid.

alejandro bonilla : 60 Hz workers 😂

FUNNY CHANEL : 9:21 Even fuller bridge rectifier

Paul Pogba : Graduated from the same school 😂

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

ムIG ™ : Even Fuller Bridge rectifier

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

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😀😀😀


Pepelajuandeag 1 : We need mafbr merch

Goku17yen : Great animations

LegacyGameplays : yey brand new vid

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

Fabio Semino : When an Electroboom video is released a capacitor and a resistor cries because they know that a brother of theirs as surely been sacrificed in the making
