Avalanche Breakdown of Thyristor

First we will describe what avalanche breakdown is. Avalanche breakdown occurs at p-n junction which is moderately doped and has a thick junction means have depletion layer width high. Avalanche breakdown occurs when we apply high reverse voltage across the p-n junction. As we apply more and more reverse voltage across the junction, the electric … Read more

Difference between DC-DC Booster and Chopper

┬áDC – DC Booster: Booster converter is a combination of Transistors, diodes, and/or inductor or capacitor. The combination of active electronic elements (diodes and transistors) provides a DC voltage step up (say 1.5 to 9 v) while the combination of passive elements acts as a filter to reduce ripples. Its basic function is to step … Read more
