Turning ON an SCR Apply enough gate triggering current. Apply anode voltage equal to break-over voltage. Turning OFF an SCR Anode current interruption Forced commutation

THYRISTOR b. TRIAC Triode AC A three-terminal device used to control the average current flow to a load. Can conduct current in either direction when it is turned on so it is called a bidirectional triode thyristor. Acts like two SCR’s connected in inverse parallel so that each SCR conducts alternately for every half cycle of an AC signal. Gated DIAC

ELECTRICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF TRIAC 1 . Maximum Allowable Main Terminal RMS Current 1 A, 3 A, 6 A, 10 A, 15 A and 25 A 2. Breakdown Voltage Highest main terminal peak voltage the triac can block in either direction typically 100 V, 200 V, 400 V and 600 V 3. On Stage Voltage Across the Terminals Ideal value is 0 V Typical value is 1-2 V

BREAK-OVER DEVICES Small thyristors which do not switch the main load current. Useful as triggering devices.
