Design of a gate-turn-off (GTO) switch for pulsed power application.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A Gate-Turn-Off (GTO) thyristor switch and its gate drive circuit have been developed as a replacement for the thyratron switch used in the positron converter solenoid lens power supply at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) to deliver a current pulse of 6000 A at 60-Hz repetition rate. This paper discusses the characteristics of the GTOs under consideration, the gate drive circuit, and some test results.
