1000 Threads found on edaboard.com: Triac Protection
RC snubber is for filtering voltage spikes, it won't do anything to limit in rush current.
What you need is a suitably sized choke in series of your triac
For example a toroid wound with wire.

Sense a zero cross @ rated frequency
as long as you have a active cross enable a triac to feed AC.

I always have many doubts on what would be better: triac or relay. These would be used for switching 230VAC devices such as flourescent bulbs (with "electronic transformer"), inductive loads and heaters. The first idea that comes to mind is to use relays as they can withstand surge voltages and currents better than triacs. When it comes to (...)

As shown in the attachment, a motor control circuit in which a surge current protection circuit is included.
Basically, the motor speed is controlled by changing the value of the variable resistor "R4", different value of R4 will trigger the diac and triac at different voltage level. It is also called phase control.

Because an SCR is not a symmetric device (NPNP != PNPN).
A triac is a bidirectional SCR pair that can / must be triggered
in the appropriate direction.

at first I thought I saw 250VAC, that would most necessarily require opto trigger.
remember the triac gate voltage must be + with respect to the triac M1 terminal (hmm or is it M2....)
so how are you to do that with the 0V common you have with the PIC circuitry.
If you have that right it should work, I take it it is a sensitive gate type (...)

check the snubber ckt. there is a snubber for triac and MOC3021 and combiled with gate protection. ref MOC3021 datasheet.
Microcontroller initialization should happern without any initial delay.
Microcontrller may get reset during mains ON/OFF. Due to EMI/EMC. u can chaeck that.
Trigger signal I/P event may get triggered during mains ON/OFF.

You have several problems here. #1, voltage spikes, these are "cured " by putting Zenamic or such like across the line. These are voltage dependent resistors, that go low resistance for a voltage overload. Their problem is that they will soak up large surges, provide they don't last too long. They are normally rated for pulses of up to 50 microse

Why is the surge protector, R26/Q4 in the schematic of page 7 of the below link (DER318)?
Page 9 of DER318 says its to stop damage due to line surges. -In this case, why haven't all the Mains LED drivers got such protection?
Is the R26/Q4 circuit put there to stop damage in case the customer accidentally connects it to a triac dimmer?

As you know, all switch mode mains LED light bulbs need protection from the overvoltages that may occur if they are accidentally connected to a triac dimmer.
Given that such circuits are usually dissipative dampers, would it be acceptable, as an alternative, to simply sense the DC bus voltage with a potential divider, and if it gets too great, th
