# For an SCR, the gate-cathode characteristics have a slope of 130. The gate power dissipation is 0.5 watt. Find Ig.

For an SCR, the gate-cathode characteristics have a slope of 130. The gate power dissipation is 0.5 watt. Find Ig.

### Right Answer is: 62 mA

#### SOLUTION

Given

Power P = Vg.Ig = 0.5

Slope Vg/Ig = 130 = Vg = 130.Ig

∴ 130.Ig2 = 0.5

Ig = 62 mA
