RC snubber circuit design for TRIACs When a TRIAC controls inductive loads, the mains voltage and the load current are not in phase. To limit the slope of the reapplied voltage and ensure right TRIAC turn-off, designer usually used a snubber circuit connected in parallel with the TRIAC. This circuit can also be used to improve TRIAC immunity to fast transient voltages, pdf file

R-C SNUBBER NOISE AND ARC SUPPRESSOR The R-C Snubber is intended to suppress the “inductive kick” from motors, solenoids or relay coils. High energy noise spikes are generated whenever current is interrupted through an inductive load. These noise spikes may interfere with associated equipment causing erratic operation and may also accelerate relay contact wear, pdf file

Snubber network design of Snubbers for Power Circuits, Snubbers are circuits which are placed across semiconductor devices for protection and to improve performance, reduce or eliminate voltage or current spikes, limit dI/dt or dV/dt, shape the load line to keep it within the safe operating area (SOA), transfer power dissipation from the switch to a resistor or a useful load, reduce total losses due to switching, reduce EMI by damping voltage and current ringing, pdf file
Snubber network RC snubber networks For thyristor power control and transient suppression, RC networks are used to control voltage transients that could falsely turn-on a thyristor. These networks are called snubbers. The simple snubber consists of a series resistor and capacitor placed around the thyristor. These components along with the load inductance form a series CRL circuit. Snubber theory follows from the solution of the circuit’s differential equation, pdf file
