Fast Thyristor 500 amp, TF243-500 (1000 – 1500V)
|Average forward current, ITAV||500A|
|Voltage code, VRRM / 100||10 – 15|
Fast Thyristor TF243-500 AS ENERGITM in disc design is a press pack type fast switching semiconductor device. This fast power thyristor designed for converting and control DC and AC currents up to 500A with frequency up to 10kHz in circuits with voltages up to 1000V – 1500V (voltage class from 10 to 15). Thyristor dimensions ØDxØdxH – 57x35x14 mm (outer case diameter X contact surface diameter X case height), weight – 180 g.
Fast thyristors are devices with reduced tq, trr, Qrr values and with a higher value (diT/dt)cr (up to 2500 A/µs) designed to operate at higher frequencies modes (up to 10kHz). Fast thyristors are characterized with a very low turn-off time that sets them apart from the standard models. They are used in welding, induction heating and melting, electric transportation, AC drives, UPS, and other systems requiring short turn-on and turn-off times. The thyristors have an industry-standard ceramic sealed housing isolating the functional part and the semiconductor element from mechanical impacts and environment.
The anode and cathode of the thyristor (polarity) are determined by the symbol on the case. Fast thyristors are in a press pack disc (capsule, tablet) housing. This fast thyristor can be an alternative product, replacement, analog, equivalent for other types of fast thyristors 450A, 470A, 490A, 500 amp in a disk package.
For cooling during the operation of power thyristors they are mounted with coolers (heat sinks). Depending on the amount of heat generated and the working conditions of the semiconductors, either natural air flow cooling or forced cooling can be used.
When assembling, the necessary clamping force Fm specific for each type of thyristor case (indicated in the parameter table) must be provided.
