The Thyristor

Added by M Hoben on Dec 15, 2008

This activity explains that a thyristor is an electronic latching switch. Circuit models illustrate that once the latch is triggered it remains on. Students must construct their own circuit, and show that a PTM switch placed in parallel with the thyristor is required to reset it.
