The SCR would be turned OFF by voltage reversal of applied anode-cathode ac supply frequency of :

  1. 10 kHz
  2. 10 Hz
  3. 5 Hz
  4. 5 kHz

Answer: 4. 5KHz

For inverter grade SCR, typical turn off time (toff) is 5 to 50 μsec
For converter grade SCR, turn off time = 50 to 100 μsec

Supply frequency of 5 kHz will turn off the SCR by voltage reversal, because

(1/ 5000Hz)  = 200 μsec.
