To express period-doubling, intermittency and period-adding chaos observed in the thyristor, we propose a simple model which describes a first return map based on experimental data. This model can express whole the aspects observed in the thyristor through changing a couple of parameters in the map function. Simulated bifurcation diagram reproduced experimental results well in its qualitative nature.
