Thyristor: Mode of operation

Published 16.07.2010

A thyristor is a semiconductor device designed primarily for controlling and switching high currents. Thyristors are used in light regulation circuits, temperature controllers, welding machines, high-power motors and so on.
A thyristor has three terminals: anode, cathode, and the control terminal.
The work of a thyristor is based on three p-n junctions ...
