This paper presents performance result of single and three phase rectifier circuits using MATLAB-SIMULINK which are one of the most used power electronics circuit. This paper also describes method & concepts used to simulate power electronic circuits using the SIMULINK toolbox within MATLAB software. The use of tool like MATLAB-SIMULINK has always been a useful for analyzing and designing different circuits. The paper presents the
performance of three phase rectifier circuits in term of its output voltage, current.
