ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF TRIAC

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. It is a bidirectional device, it conducts in both direction.

Disadvantages of TRIAC

1. Gate has no control over conduction once TRIAC is turned on.

2. It has very high switching delay.

3. It is not suitable for DC power applications.
