Access from EThOS:
The turn on behaviour of thyristors resulting from the application of a gate pulse is described. From this investigation a thyristor model is developed which enables the computation of the anode - cathode voltage and anode current during turn on. Comparisons are made between the measured and computed waveforms for many different circuits including series and parallel operation of thyristors.
