Hello there and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. I am an engineer with over 30 years of electrical and electronic training, repair and installation experience. I will try and answer your question accurately and precisely so that we can get you on your way.
I need to gather some more information from you in order to help.
The amp draw is completely dependent on the impedance of the load.Any idea what that is?
No you are fine. Are your components rated for 320V?
There are lots of formulas but without knowing the circuit layout, there's no way I could do that for you :) It's also about three semesters-worth of Physics.How are you gating the SCR? What kind of device is this?
Haha no, Kirchoff's Laws and circuit theory in general.Again, you need the impedance of the load. The load determines the amperage drawn from the capacitor. If you have a small load, the amp draw will be small. If you have a larger load, the amperage will be higher.How are you gating the SCR?
