PE solutions for GATE 2014

Dear All,
I have prepared solutions for power electronics questions for GATE 2014
Here is my take away in PE from three sets of papers.

1. I found the number of questions are same in all three sets
2. Number of one mark question = 1
3. Number of two mark questions = 3
4. Total marks from PE is 7 marks in each set of paper.

I noticed the priority for all subjects is same in all three sets but students felt different due to so many reasons. Any how I dont want to discuss all those now
