Homework Help: Power Electronics controlled rectifier solved example

  1. Dec 31, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations
    Solved example

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I think the red part should be (alpha/firing angle) = 180 - 45
    Here since the angle is 45, it makes no difference if you do 90 + 45 or 180 - 45, but i think it should be 180 - 45.
    Am I right?
