## How does firing angle affect the Average Output Current in full-wave controlled rectifier?

Changing the firing angle in a full-wave controlled rectifier significantly affects the Average Output Current. As the firing angle increases, the conduction period of the thyristors decreases, resulting in a smaller portion of the AC input voltage being rectified and sent to the load. This leads to a lower average output current, causing a greater phase shift between the current and voltage waveforms. Conversely, decreasing the firing angle increases conduction time, leading to a higher average output current and reduced phase shift, resulting in a smoother and more continuous output current waveform.
