This formula uses 5 Variables
Variables Used
Excess energy in chopper circuit - (Measured in Joule) - Excess energy in chopper circuit is the energy stored in the inductor Lm due to reverse recovery time of thyristor T1 of the chopper circuit.
Reverse di/dt limiting inductance - (Measured in Henry) - Reverse di/dt limiting inductance is the inductor connected in series with thyristor 2 of the chopper circuit with di/dt limiting indicators.
Load current of chopper circuit - (Measured in Ampere) - Load current of chopper circuit is the current flowing across the load of the circuit.
Reverse Recovery Time - (Measured in Second) - Reverse Recovery Time is the amount of time the current flows in the reverse direction when the forward current simultaneously switches directions due to residual stored charge.
Commutation capacitor voltage - (Measured in Volt) - Commutation capacitor voltage is the voltage across the capacitor C in the chopper circuit with di/dt limiting inductors.
