C106 thyristor is a semiconductor device, also known as thyristor. It has one-way conduction characteristics and can control the current in the circuit under the action of a control signal. Its working principle can be divided into two states: the blocking state and the conduction state. Under the action of forward voltage, the thyristor is in a blocking state. At this time, the potential of the A pole is higher than the potential of the K pole, and the PN junction inside the thyristor will prevent the flow of current. But when a forward trigger voltage is applied to the control electrode, the minority carriers in the PNP junction area of the thyristor will increase, thus triggering the thyristor to conduct.

Thyristors have one-way conductivity and, like switches, can control the current in a circuit. Its sensitive triggering characteristics can easily trigger conduction under the action of control signals. In addition, it has a large current bearing capacity, can withstand large currents, and has a fast response speed, which can quickly switch currents.

Thyristors are widely used in power electronic control, such as AC control, DC control, electric furnace control, and other fields. In power electronic circuits, thyristors can be used as switching, rectifiers, inverters, etc., to achieve voltage regulation, power control, and other purposes.

C106 thyristor driver reasons and methods

Thyristors also have some shortcomings, such as a large voltage drop at low voltage, a large conduction voltage drop in the conductive state, and vulnerability to high temperatures and voltage shocks. Therefore, when using thyristors, you need to pay attention to their driving and protection issues.

For thyristor driving, an appropriate drive circuit is required to provide a trigger signal to turn the current on and off. For low-power circuits, the pulse-triggered driving method can be used; for high-power, high-precision circuits, the analog-controlled driving method can be used; for complex functions, the digital-controlled driving method can be used.

  1. Pulse trigger:By applying a pulse signal between the anode and cathode of the thyristor, it reaches the threshold voltage and turns on. The advantage of pulse triggering is that it’s simple, easy to implement, and suitable for small power circuits.
  2. Analog control:Control the turn-on and turn-off of the thyristor by simulating physical quantities such as voltage and current in the circuit. The advantage of analog control is that it has high control accuracy and is suitable for high-power and high-precision circuits.
  3. Digital control: The thyristors are controlled through digital chips such as digital signal processors (DSP). The advantage of digital control is that it is highly flexible and can realize complex functions.


C106 thyristor protection measures

In order to prevent overvoltage, overcurrent, and other abnormal conditions from damaging the thyristor and the entire circuit, the following protection measures need to be taken:

  1. Overvoltage protection:An overvoltage protection device, such as a varistor, TVS tube, etc., is connected in parallel between the anode and cathode of the thyristor. When the voltage exceeds the set value, the protection device will quickly turn on to limit the overvoltage within a certain range, thereby protecting the thyristor from damage.
  2. Overcurrent protection: Add overcurrent protection circuits to the circuit, such as fast fuses, current transformers, etc. When the current exceeds the set value, the protection circuit will act quickly to cut off the circuit or send an alarm signal to protect the thyristor from damage.
  3. Temperature protection:Install a temperature sensor on the surface of the thyristor to monitor its operating temperature in real-time. When the temperature exceeds the set value, the control system will take corresponding protective measures, such as reducing power, closing the circuit, etc., to protect the thyristor from damage.
  4. Fast shutdown protection: Add a fast shutdown circuit to the gate of the thyristor, such as MOSFET, etc. When the current needs to be turned off quickly, the control system will trigger the thyristor to turn off through the MOSFET, thereby protecting the circuit from damage.

As an important power electronic device, the C106 thyristor plays a key role in the circuit. In order for it to work properly and avoid damage, it needs to be properly driven and protected. This article introduces the concept, characteristics, and applications of the C106 thyristor and focuses on its driving methods and protection measures. By understanding this knowledge, you can better apply the C106 thyristor and design more reliable and efficient power electronic systems.
