Power Control Using SCR
In the phase-control circuit given in fig. The variable resistance R 2 limits the gate current during positive half cycles of the supply.
If the moving contact is set to the top of resistor R 2 , resistance in the circuit is the lowest and the SCR may trigger almost immediately at the commencement of the positive half cycle of the input. If, on the other hand, the moving contact is set to the bottom of resistor R 2 , resistance in the circuit is maximum, the SCR may not switch on until the peak of the positive half-cycle.

This operation is sometimes referred to as half-wave variable-resistance phase control. It is an effective method of controlling the load power.
Diode D is provided to protect the SCR gate from the negative voltage that would otherwise be applied during the negative half cycle of the input.
It can be seen from the circuit diagram shown in fig. In the circuit shown here, the resistor R and capacitor C determine the point in the input cycle at which the SCR triggers. During the negative half cycle of the input, capacitor C is charged negatively with the polarity shown in the figure through diode D 2 to the peak of the input voltage because diode D 2 is forward-biased. When the peak of the input negative half cycle is passed, diode D 2 gets reverse-biased and capacitor C commences to discharge through resistor R.
What you Should Know about SCR Power Controllers
The simplest of SCR control circuits is shown in figure. If SCR were an ordinary rectifier, it would develop half-wave rectified ac voltage across the load R L. The same would be true if the gate of the SCR had a continuous bias voltage to keep it on when the anode-cathode voltage V AK goes positive. A trigger pulse applied to the gate can switch the device at any time during the positive half-cycle of the input.
The resultant load waveform is a portion of positive half cycle commencing at the instant at which the SCR is triggered. Resistor R G holds the gate-cathode voltage, V G at zero when no trigger input is present. Most of the time, Vt Or Vak is constant Almost.
Dear Sir , I am in a quandry. Will the voltage drop across the load cause a variation in the tv?
Heat Control Circuit Using SCR
Alsp if i referace the load to the anode are there any issues that i am not considering? I want to know how DC brash motor speed control with SCR I use 4 wair motor 2wair for feeld other 2 wair for brash thank you.
