GTO Thyristor

GTO (gate turn-off thyristor) is a fully controllable type of thyristor.
Conventional thyristors can be controlled at turn on but not at the current turn off.
Thereby GTO thyristors in DC circuits and inverters do not require any special current-quenching means.
The figure shows a conventional graphical model of a GTO thyristor ...
