Title: Protective circuit for thyristor controlled systems and thyristor converter embodying such protective circuit

Abstract

A snubber circuit coupled across each thyristor to be gated in a chain of thyristors determines the critical output of a NOR LATCH whenever one snubber circuit could not be charged and discharged under normal gating conditions because of a short failure.
