A complementary current impulse commutated thyristor inverter is discussed in this paper. In this configuration, the two pairs of diagonally opposite located thyristors, which comprise a phase inverter, are alternately utilized as commutation and as main thyristors. Therefore, simultaneous conduction of two complementary thyristors becomes the normal means of achieving commutation, and the problem of ``shoot-through'' across the dc source is eliminated.
