Thanks, Finn!
    Your explanation makes sense, but it seems like  you have to go through a 
lot of gyrations to accommodate the resonant charging  supply.

Could you also control a triggered SISG by altering  the duty cycle? Utilize 
sections that won't trigger at the highest supply  voltage, and only let them 
conduct when you trigger them? This would let you  ramp the BPS from zero to 
max, but at a constant bang size.
