What is a thyristor ?
A thyristor is a solid-state semiconductor electronic switch consisting of four layers, alternately N and P doped. It is one of the essential components of power electronics. Its name comes from the Greek thura, which means gate, and the suffix “istor”, which comes from the word transistor.
