This circuit gives a burst of pulses to fire 2 SCRs, when pin 4 is taken to 12V the SCR is

turned on, to use this circuit you need 12V short pulses phase shifted with respect to AC
sine wave on bridge.

This way you can control the bridge from near 0% to near 100% ON, that way battery
banks can be charged, electroplating can be done, current and voltage can be controlled
with opamps, thyristors are very rugged compared to transistors and MOSFETS in that
order
