Abstract

The turn-on and turn-off losses in a GTO thyristor must be properly accounted for because they can comprise upwards of 60% of the total losses. If a research can be done to remove the defect and reduce the losses and improved the performance of the GTO thyristor, it will be a great breakthrough to the semiconductor field. This report represents the study on the Gate Turn- Off (GTO) Thyristor using simulation software. This project which was done in 2 semesters (July 2006 semester and January 2007 semester) is the study on the method to improve the performance of the GTO thyristor by reducing it losses. During the first part of the project, familiarization with the TCAD SILVACO ATHENA and ATLAS is done in order to continue doing a critical evaluation to the device; furthermore this step is very important during the extraction process of the electrical performance for the conventional device. For the second semester, the review process of the researches done by other people began to takeplace. Each of the reference and research found will be carefully compared. The best design or steps is then being chosen to be adopted in the project.
