What is Active Components and Passive Components?

What is Active Components and Passive Components? All electronic circuits, however complicated, contain a few basic components (generally speaking, only five)—three passive and two active components. Though passive components by themselves are not capable of amplifying or processing an electrical signal but these components are as important in an electronic circuit, as active ones (such …

Gate Turn Off Thyristor (GTO) – Symbol, Operations and Applications

Gate Turn Off Thyristor (GTO) – Symbol, Operations and Applications: Conventional thyristors are used as ideal switches in power electronic applications. They have the capability of blocking several thousand volts in the off-state and conducting several thousand amperes in the on-state with only small on-state voltage drop. The only drawback of conventional thyristor is that …
