    You will need an input from a zero crossing detector to synch the microprocessor with the AC line. The phase angle may be adjusted by triggering the SCR at any desired time after the AC waveform crosses zero. The period is 20 milliseconds for 50 Hz power.

    can explain more detail in the zero crosing detector

    Here is the basic idea. If you use an appropriately rated opto-isolator, you can have your firing circuit operate near ground, isolated from the power line -much safer, particularly early in the game, when you might want to monitor waveforms. You can drive your thysistor's gate through an isolated pulse transformer. If you do this, make sure your control circuit is properly grounded for your own safety (and keep one hand in your back pocket!)
