TRIAC or Triode for Alternating Current

TRIAC. Power control on alternating current (AC) Triac is a semiconductor device that belongs to the family of thyristor control devices. It is essentially two SCR connected in parallel but on the opposite direction and they share the same gate. (See the diagram). Triac is only used with alternating current and like the SCR, it is triggered by the gate. Triac works with alternating current, so there will be […]
