Advantages of TRIAC


1. Triac turns OFF when the voltage is

reduced to zero.


2. Single gate controls conduction in both

directions.


3. Triac with high voltage current ratings

are available.


4. Triac is a bidirectional device, it conducts

in both direction.


Disadvantages of TRIAC

1. Gate has no control over conduction once

Triac is turned ON as in the case of an SCR.


2. Triac has very high switching delay.


3. Triac is not suitable for DC power

applications.
