Rise time - power semiconductor devices , Electrical Engineering

Rise  Time (tr)

During  rise time voltage falls from 90% Va to 10%  where  Va where Va is the initial  anode  voltage. In terms  of current  time taken  by anode  current  to rise form  10% Ia 90 % I a is  the final value  of anode  current. The turn  on time  of a thyristor mainly depends  upon the  rise time. If tr is high means ton will be high.  To reduce the time tr should  be kept  low in limit. The rise  time tr can  be reduced by applying  high and  current  pulses to the gate because is inversely proportional to the magnitude of Is  and its build up rate. During tr Ia  starts spreading from the narrow  conducting  region near  the gate.
