Full form of MCT

What is the full form of MCT?

Answer :

  • MOS Controlled Thyristor

What does MCT mean?

MCT is a voltage controlled fully controllable thyristor that was invented by V.A.K Temple. 

They have basically two MOSFET of opposite conductivity types in their equivalent circuits one is used for turning on the MCT and other turning off the devices. 

An MCT is a higher frequency, low conduction, higher-power, drop switching device it combines the feature of both conventional four-layer thyristor having regenerative action and MOS-gate structure.
