Ubuntu is an open-source operating system (OS) based on the Debian GNU/Linux distribution. Ubuntu incorporates all the features of a Unix OS with an added customizable GUI, which makes it popular in universities and research organizations. Ubuntu is primarily designed to be used on personal computers, although a server editions does also exist....
A thyristor is a solid state and four-layered semiconductor used in electronic devices and equipment to control electrical power or current output through a phase angle control technique.
A thyristor is also known as a semiconductor-controlled rectifier (SCR) or silicon controlled rectifier (SCR).
Thyristors are primarily designed to amplify and rectify the electrical currents that flow in high-powered electronic devices. A thyristor's four layers consist of a series of N and P-type material that connect with the anode, cathode and a logic gate. When a current is applied at the gate, the thyristor allows an amplified current to flow form anode to cathode.
Although thrysitors can only transmit currents in one direction, they have three different operating modes: reverse blocking, forward blocking and forward conducting.
