14. Explain Operation of Single Phase Full Converter with neat diagram and expression for RMS and output voltage for RLE.

15. A Single phase full converter is supplied from 230 V, 50 Hz source. The Load consists of R = 10 ohm and a large inducatance so as to render the load current constant. For a firing angle delay of 30 , determine :
i) Average output voltage,
ii) Average output current,
iii)Average and rms values of thyristor currents,
iv) The Power factor.
