Two Bridge Rectifiers In Parallel



Two otherwise identical 2 phase ac sources are 90 degrees out of phase
and you want to convert them to a single dc power supply.

Is it possible to simply use two bridge rectifiers, one for each ac
source and then connect the + output from one bridge to the + from the
other, etc.?

Assume the variation in dc voltage isn't an issue as it should be
attenuated somewhat anyway.
