Single-phase and two-phase generators have 100% ripple. Three-phase generators have ripple values between 5 and 15%. Modern X-ray generators use high-frequency inverters to create an approximate DC waveform, minimizing the ripple effect to less than 1%.
Minimizing the ripple effect is desired to increase both the quantity and quality of the X-ray beam.
