Thyristors are used in DC and AC converters with an operating frequency of up to 1,000 Hz, in inverting and switching circuits of converter setups for electric locomotives and other types of electrically propelled vehicles, in power rectifiers for electroplating baths, for charging batteries, in high-voltage rectifier-inverter units of DC transmission line substations, and in aircraft de-icing equipment.
• Air-cooled heatsinks for threated stud designs
• Air-cooled heatsinks for press pack designs
• Water-cooled heatsinks for press pack designs
These diodes can also be used as freewheeling diodes connected back-to-back/parallel to thyristors or as shunting diodes for inductance load.
