THE KEY to efficient inverter circuits, using silicon controlled rectifiers (SCR's), is the method of commutation — the process of transferring current from one controlled rectifier to another. When feedback rectifiers are used to provide an alternative path for reactive load current, the size of the commutating components can be greatly reduced,1 and the commutation transient takes the form of an impulse. This impulse must be large enough to extinguish the current in the conducting controlled… CONTINUE READING
