Since its introduction in the early sixties, the thyristor has come to stay as a basic building block in many industrial and power system applications. Today, thyristors are being increasingly used for diverse applications in the industrial field. The present book encompasses the rapid advances in the theory and practical applications of thyristors. The first section of the book covers characteristics of thyristors, their fabrication technology; line commutated converters and inverters, dual converters and forced commutated inverters.
The second section is entirely devoted to the delineation of thyristor application in the control of ac and dc motors, choppers, HVDC transmission lines, optimisation and protection measures. Equally emphasising both theory and application of thyristors this book will be an invaluable text for engineering students and a useful productive reference for professional engineers.
