THE REVERSE CONDUCTING THYRISTOR AND ITS APPLICATION

DER RUECKWARTSLEITENDE THYRISTOR UND SEINE ANWENDUNG

The reverse conducting thyristor is a thyristor associated with an anti-parallel diode on a silicon crystal: Insofar as this eliminates a block in the thyristor, losses can be considerably reduced. The two components are prevented from interfering with each other by means of built-in protection rings. A simple method for assessing heat stress is described, as are several applications (chopper, converter, electric filter) for which this thyristor offers technical and cost advantages.
