I've a small question about TRIAC operation.
If I've a TRIAC with IGT=5mA, Ih=10mA and IL=20mA, driving an AC Load (230VAC 50Hz).
I know that if I send a 5mA pulse to the TRIAC gate, it will be ON until load current falls under 10mA.
I also know that if I send a 5mA pulse to the TRIAC gate, load current must be at least 20mA when I remove gate current to keep the TRIAC in ON state.
But what's going on when I continuously power gate with 5mA ? Does the TRIAC able to provide less than 20mA (or 10mA) to the load ? Or Ih/IL are absolute minimal current going through the TRIAC ?
Many thanks for your answer and sorry for my bad English.
