Thyristors, also called silicon controlled rectifiers, are solid-state semiconductor devices with four layers of alternating N and P-type material. In 1958 General Electric invented the world’s first thyristor in USA and commercialized its usage a year later.
With its large number of advantages, thyristors are widely used in numerous applications including speed control of DC and AC motors, control of induction heating, relay control, phase control, special power supplies for aircrafts and computers.
