Phase- Controlled Thyristor Converters with Resistive/ Inductive Load


Basic Thyristor Converter

(1) Drag the vertical red time-marker with the mouse. The corresponding power circuit conduction state is animated in the power circuit applet.
(2) The second time-diagram shows the generation of the gate-signal of the thyristor. Drag the horizontal red line with the mouse to change the delay of the triggering signal (firing angle "Alpha") of the thyristor.
(3) The left-hand applet shows resistive-inductive load. Drag the horizontal red line in the load symbol with the mouse to increase the resistive component while decreasing the inductive component (or vice versa).
