I have been looking at some circuits using triacs and mosfets to control devices that run on 120V power mains. The mosfets & triacs in these circuits were able to manage about 300 watts. This made me start thinking about power transistors also. What are some transistors (part numbers) that would be able to control 120V devices in the 300 watt range? I know that a trasistors probably are not the best choice for this application, but I want to experiment anyway. Humor me.
Also, what if I want to control some real power like maybe 600-1200 watts. Any suggestions for mosfets, triacs, and transistors in this range?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
