Abstract

A new turn-off circuit for gate-turn-off (GTO), which is simple and of low energy consumption is presented. The principle is based on the resonance between saturating inductance of the magnetic core and the parasitic capacitance included in GTO. Analytical as well as experimental results are presented.
