    OK , directly expressing the problem scenario .
    I have a temperature sensor [IC LM 35], comparator [IV 741 opamp] , a fan [18V D.C fan], thyristor [SCR TYN612M].

    Now, i want to use them over to form a circuit capable of controlling my fan speed in proportional to temperature.
    Is there a way out to form a simple but effective circuit out of this?
    HELP !

    i know what to do but don't know how to do (eg, i don't know what values of L-C pair should i employ for simple commutation of SCR)

    SCR needs to be ruled out of scene i am thinking of using BJT transistor with enough rating to start working with LM35 output being fed to its base.
    Will it work?


    If yes, then what rating of transistor should i choose and are there any other pheriferals(resistors,capacitors etc) required
