Abstract : The most general case considered in this paper is the case of off-resonant charging voltage zero firing with dissipation, phase shift, and residual charge all present. To analyze the effect of these items separately we can eliminate the other items either before or after solution of the differential equation for current. It turns out that the cases with D = O and F = 1 are more easily solved by recognizing D as zero and F as unity before solution because of the nasty indeterminate forms that result from the alternate procedure: but great care must be exercised when interpreting the results as can be seen from part C of this Appendix. Analyzing cases involving all possible combinations of the above mentioned parameters involving all possible combinations of the above mentioned parameters multiplies the work tremendously; trivially different solutions are not stated in this paper. Current fired cases are derived from the charging voltage fired cases by considering the results with arbitrary phase shift. That phase shift angle which makes the current zero at the time of firing is solved for in terms of the other parameters and the resulting expression put back into the equations. The same method of procedure is followed for capacitor voltage firing using the arbitrary phase case as a starting point and tying the phase down by the capacitor voltage specified at the time of firing.
