As charging continues v r is eventually high enough

This preview shows page 30 - 42 out of 42 pages.

As charging continues, V r is eventually high enough to turn the Zener on, which then fires SCR 2 . Once SCR 2 is on, the voltage divider network of R 2 and R 3 will result in a level at V 2 which is too small to turn SCR 1 on. Thus the regulator recharges the battery whenever its voltage drops and prevents overcharging when it is fully charged.

Thyristors 31 SCRs are unidirectional devices since current can flow only in one direction. Diacs and triacs are bidirectional thyristors, where current can flow in either direction. A diac has two terminals (anode 1 and anode 2 ), whilst a triac has a third terminal (gate). The triac can be viewed as a bidirectional SCR. Most common application for the diac is as a triggering device for a triac in AC control circuits. Bidirectional Thyristors

Thyristors 38 Operation in quadrant I is identical to the operation of the SCR. Operation in quadrant III is simply a reflection of quadrant I operation. The triac can be triggered into conduction by either: 1. Applying a negative gate trigger while A 2 is positive (quadrant II) or 2. Applying a positive gate trigger while A 2 is negative (quadrant IV). The Triac Opration regions
