Other Switches and the MCT
The seven power semiconductor switches that are discussed in Chapters 3 to 9 are established devices. Each has a range of applications that suits it best. At one end of the scale there is the low-frequency, high power thyristor and at the other end of the scale there is the high-frequency, low-power MOSFET.
