In a single phase full wave converter (M - 2 connection) feeding a highly inductive load, the firing angle for each thyristor is a in the respective half cycle. The period of conduction of each thyristor is

[A]. p - a
[B]. p
[C]. p + a
[D]. p - 2a

Answer: Option B


Since conduction is from a to p + a, period of conduction is p in each half cycle.

For half cycle pulse duration= p+a - a = p.

It should be π - α.
