For controlling the firing angle and maintaining constant load voltagejcurrent. 9 INTERNAL POWER DISSIPATION AND TEMPERATURE RISE The J2R loss due to the forward current is the major component of the THYRISTORS 29 total power dissipation in the SCR. , the losses during the transition period when the device goes from on-state to off-state, and vice versa) at higher operating frequencies will be greater than those at lower frequencies. However, for the present we may ignore these switching losses and the gate power dissipation.

Here, a part of the thermally-generated r1 I I I Cj: ::=: I I t---------------IJ2 N r------------------IJ1 p l_ Fig. 6 Shorted emitter structure. leakage current and the charging current across the reverse-biased junction h are diverted around the gate-to-cathode junction by providing an alternative low-impedance path to the cathode as shown in the figure. Because of the side-gate structure and the highly-resistive P layer, the turn-on time of such an SCR is high.
