i recently came across an exercise involving solving for the energy released in a freewheeling diode. This is the circuit: The problem is that i’m not understanding the current equations for the inductor(L) when the transistor is on and off: Transistor ON: Transistor OFF: This is because when the diode resistance is really small, the […]

- Tags and allways increase the inductor current till infinite. As that cannot really happen in real life, and this cycle will continue to go, i recently came across an exercise involving solving for the energy released in a freewheeling diode. This is the circuit: The problem is th, i´m asking where my thinking is going wrong. Thank you guys for all the help., iL(t0) is going to be larger than 0, in the next period, not dissipating all the inductor energy in the diode resistance in a cycle. Because of this, the constant (L/R) is going to be small as well, thus
