Half-wave controlled rectifier circuit (Power Electronics)

I've attached jpegs that show the circuits that I'm working with. My problem is that I don't know how to find the values of Ct and Rt for a specific firing angle. What formulas are needed? Is the calculation affected by the fact that there are two different loads (see circuits 1 and 2 jpegs)? What process must I go through to fi
