Some years ago, I saw a lot of information on MCTs and speculation that they would make a large impact on VSD and inverter design, particularly due to their low on state voltage and the ability to give a high efficiency.

I have not seen any commercial rendition of this technology in VSDs or inverters. Anyone seen anything using MCTs??

Best regards,

MCT is a Mos Controlled Thyristor.
It is a little like a thyristor with a MOS FET input gate. It has the advantage of low ON state voltage.

thanks for that info

I thought it was summing to do with the new Matrix Convertors that are coming out
