Unformatted text preview: 3The thyristor in the shown circuit has a latching current level of 50mA and is fired by a pulse of length 50 microseconds. Show that without resistance R the thyristor will fail to remain on when the firing pulse ends, and then find the maximum value of R to ensure firing. Neglect the voltage drop. R L =20Ω, L=0.5H. 4 A thyristor has a forward characteristic which may be approximated over its normal working range to the straight line shown in figure. Estimate the mean power loss for: a. A continuous onstate current of 23A b. A half sine wave of mean value 18 A c. A level current of 48.5 A for onethird cycle...
