I am trying to make this circuit:
I got reference from this site, which is very useful, thanking them for info; https://components101.com/ics/moc3041-zero-cross-triac-driven-optoisolator
Despite all of this, I am facing an issue, when I applied voltage (for testing I used stepped down 7.5 VAC) and checked output across load, when snubber is not attached TRIAC is turning off, but when snubber is applied, TRIAC never turns off.
I tested snubber resistor and capacitor with meter, capacitor is not shorted, and resistor value is coming correct. So can I say, snubber components are not faulty as per multimeter. If they are not faulty, why is triac not turning off at all.
Please let me know what is wrong in this circuit, if more information is need let me know.
Note that I have used BTA16A, and instead of 39 Ω of snubber, I have used 360 Ω for inductive load. (360 is not exact value, I have used, 330+39 Ω = 369 Ω since 360 Ω is not a standard value).
