Answer : No we cannot turn off normal thyristor using Gate.

Answer : Thyristor conducts when the anode voltage is greater than cathode and when the current provided to Gate.

Answer : Thyristor have three terminals anode, cathode and Gate.

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.

Answer : Thyristor can only be turned on by small gate pulse but it cannot be turn off by using gate hence thyristor is called semi controlled device.

Answer : Thyristor can be turn on by positive gate pulse and the current will continue to flow through the device even when the gate voltage is low hence thyristor is called latching device.
