I'm working on preparing a course about power electronics, and with my basic search conclusions. I thought that if it's possible or acceptable to classify the power electronics components in 2 main groups.
Group1: Controlled/Uncontrolled rectifiers
Includes: Power Diode, Thyristor, GTO, TRIAC and DIAC.
Group2: Power Transistors
Includes: BJTs, MOSFETs and IGBTs.
My questions, is my dividing power electronics components in 2 main groups, acceptable; as:
- Controlled/Uncontrolled rectifiers
- Power Transistors
Also, I don't want to add more components, because I want to keep it simple and just studying the basic and most important things.
