Component Review: TRIAC

Published on: | Author: Marinus Burger | Categories: 2016a, Tutorials

As some course members had to do some extra tasks, I did some research that you can see here on an active component, the Triode for Alternating Current. Because we were considering to use one in our project in order to handle serious current loads for the ventilator, I brought my holy TRIAC enclosure along with the washing machine motor to the course. As soon as we got told that working with 230 V wires was not exactly meant to be part of this project, we turned the idea down but still had some short fun with the untamed power of that beast. washing_machine_motor
