Description : Draw the structural diagram of GTO. Explain briefly the switching behavior of GTO with the help of appropriate voltage and current waveform.

Answer : Gate Turn Off Thyristor (GTO) Conventional Thyristor can be turned on with gate terminal but can not turn off from gate terminal. But in case of Gate Turn Off Thyristor (GTO), we can turn it on and off ... subdivided as storage period (Ts), fall period (Tp) and tail period (Tt).

Answer : GTO can be turned on by providing positive pulse to the gate terminal and it can be turn off by providing negative pulse to gate terminal.

Description : thyristor can be turned off by?

Answer : Thyristor can be turned off by making anode potential equal to cathode potential or by making anode potential less than cathode potential.

Description : Explain thyristor gate drive circuit.

Answer : Thyristor Gate Drive Circuit: The thyristor can be turned on by pulse voltage signal at gate terminal and it does not require continuous drive signal like the transistor. The gate ... circuit provide required minimum gate voltage and gate current then the thyristor conducts properly.

Description : Is gate turn on mechanism of GTO is similar to conventional thyristor?

Answer : Yes gate turn on mechanism of GTO is similar to conventional thyristor.
