A good analogy for initially understanding duty cycle can start with the idea of riding a bicycle. You peddle (period of energy exertion) and then coast (continue moving from your own forward force, without the addition of any power). As you slow down (due to wind resistance, road friction, or road terrain) you peddle to speed up and then coast again. The 'duty cycle' is the ratio of...
