A new packaging technology for a phase-control thyristor providing enhanced case non-rupture current capability is presented. The new housing with 100 mm pole piece diameter is developed for thyristors and rectifier diodes rated at 6.5 kV to withstand currents applied in reverse direction up to 95 kA.
