## Chopping Period Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Chopping Period = Chopper On Time+Circuit Turn Off Time
T = Ton+Tc
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Chopping Period - (Measured in Second) - The Chopping Period is defined as complete time cycle, comprising both the on-time and off-time of the chopper switch.
Chopper On Time - (Measured in Second) - Chopper On Time refers to the time period for which chopper was in ON state.
Circuit Turn Off Time - (Measured in Second) - Circuit Turn Off Time is defined as duration taken for the chopper to turn off or open its switching elements (usually thyristors or SCRs) once the decision is made to interrupt the current flow.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Chopper On Time: 0.45 Second --> 0.45 Second No Conversion Required
Circuit Turn Off Time: 0.4 Second --> 0.4 Second No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
T = Ton+Tc --> 0.45+0.4
Evaluating ... ...
T = 0.85
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.85 Second --> No Conversion Required
0.85 Second <-- Chopping Period

## <Chopper Core Factors Calculators

Excess Work Due to Thyristor 1 in Chopper Circuit
​ Go Excess Work = 0.5*Limiting Inductance*((Output Current+(Reverse Recovery Time*Capacitor Commutation Voltage)/Limiting Inductance)-Output Current^2)
Ripple Factor of DC Chopper
​ Go Ripple Factor = sqrt((1/Duty Cycle)-Duty Cycle)
Duty Cycle
​ Go Duty Cycle = Chopper On Time/Chopping Period
Effective Input Resistance
​ Go Input Resistance = Resistance/Duty Cycle

## Chopping Period Formula

Chopping Period = Chopper On Time+Circuit Turn Off Time
T = Ton+Tc

## What is the relation between chopping time period and chopping frequency?

Chopping time period is the reciprocal of chopping frequency. In other words, chopping time period (T) is equal to 1 divided by chopping frequency (f), represented as T = 1/f. The SI unit of chopping frequency is Hertz.

## How to Calculate Chopping Period?

Chopping Period calculator uses Chopping Period = Chopper On Time+Circuit Turn Off Time to calculate the Chopping Period, The Chopping Period formula is defined as the time period for which chopper was in ON and OFF state. Chopping Period is denoted by T symbol.

How to calculate Chopping Period using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Chopping Period, enter Chopper On Time (Ton) & Circuit Turn Off Time (Tc) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Chopping Period calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.85 = 0.45+0.4.
