Determine the peak-to-peak ripple current

An Rl load as shown in figure below is controlled by a chopper. If load resistance R=0.25 ohms, inductance L=20 mH, supply voltage Vs=600V, battery voltage E=150V, and chopping frequency F=250 Hz, determine the peak-to-peak ripple current (delta I).

Because, this is a case of half rectificcation.

Vm (maximum voltage) = 600*sqrt(2) - 150 = 698.53 V

Z = sqrt(R^2 + XL^2)
XL = 2*pi*f*L = ...
