A newly developed thyristor for thyristor controlled series compensation (TCSC), a FACTS controller, is analyzed. In order to qualify the device for unusually severe requirements, both mathematical modeling based on semiconductor physics and a thorough high current test series were carried out. Results corroborate the accuracy of the model and demonstrate that the thyristor exceeds the thermal and di/dt requirements of the intended installation
