In a circuit using a full wave converter (M - 2 connection) the PIV of each thyristor is 400 V. For the same output voltage and fully controlled bridge converter, PIV will be

[A]. 400 V
[B]. 800 V
[C]. 200 V
[D]. 2002 V

Answer: Option C


In bridge connection PIV is half of that in M-2 connection.
