    Assuming that the given formula is for the voltage developed over the load, we should proceed as follows.

    For firing angle of theta = 45 deg

    Sin(2*theta) = Sin(2 x 45)

    Sin(2*theta) = Sin(90) = 1

    Need to ...

    Solution Summary

    Using a set formula for the RMS Voltage produced by a thyristor the ratio of the power dissipated to the maximum power that can be dissipated is determined based on a firing angle of 45 degrees.
