VI Characteristics of SCR (Silicon controlled rectifier)

The VI characteristics of SCR(silicon controlled rectifier) is a graph of anode current Ia on the y-axis and anode to cathode voltage on the x-axis as shown in the graph. The characteristics in the reverse direction (anode to cathode voltage negative) is similar to a reverse-biased diode. SCR is a member of the thyristor family. […]

What is Silicon Controlled Rectifier SCR

Silicon Controlled Rectifier (SCR) is one of the oldest four-layer solid-state power device it was invented in 1957. SCR has the highest power handling capacity in comparison with other semiconductor devices. It has three terminals namely anode, cathode, and gate
