Abstract:

A 200A gate turn-off thyristor was developed along with a device tester, inverter, and circuit breaker. Devices capable of interrupting 200 Amps in 1.0 microsecond with a forced turn-off gain of 5 were obtained. The inverter and circuit breaker use these devices. The theory of operation for both devices and circuits are presented. Fabrication techniques are also presented. Author
