Applications of gate turn OFF thyristor (GTO)

There are some applications of gate turn OFF thyristor (GTO) are given below,

  • It is used in high performance drive systems, such as the field oriented control scheme used in rolling mills, robotics and machine tools.
  • It is used for traction applications because of their lighter weight.
  • The GTO is used in inverters.
  • The GTO is used in DC drives or DC choppers.
  • The GTO is used in AC drives.
  • It is used in AC stabilizing power supplies.
  • It is used in Induction heater.
  • The GTO is used in static VAR compensators (SVCs).
