Good Day Experts,

I need your help in regards to the controlled rectifier bridge circuit below:

I need help calculating the RMS value of the fundamental component of source current. The electrical circuit is a fully controlled single phase rectifier bridge. In the lecture the value is
$Is_{1}=\frac{2\sqrt{2}}{\pi}I_{0}$
However, I have also tried integrating to find the RMS value and used the limits
$0 \to \ \pi$
$I_{RMS}=\frac{I_{0}}{\sqrt{2}}$
Then, I tried integrating from
$\alpha \to (\pi + \alpha )$
I got the following:
$I_{RMS}=\frac{I_{0}}{\sqrt{2 \pi}}$

All of the values I got are different than the one shown in the lecture. Please make any suggestions and point me in the right direction. Don't hesitate to provide corrections.
