|Abstract:||Mechanisms of thyristor turn-on wore studied. An attempt was made to relate the ‘on’ plasma spreading velocity to the small signal current gain value of the n-p-n transistor section of the thyristor. The extent to which the thyristor turns on initially largely affects the speed of turning-on the device. A model is proposed to calculate the initial turned-on area of thyristors.|
