What Are The Most Common Thyristor Firing Methods?
Thyristors are controlled by sending the correct signal to the gate connection of the device. It will then continue to let current flow until the gate signal is removed and the voltage through it reaches zero. There are two main methods of firing the thyristors:
Zero Voltage Crossover Firing
