I want to have a double pulse test for the MOSFET. The drain current needs to reach 17 A peak. So to choose the capacitor and inductor I did the following,

DC Bus voltage = 400 V

    \[Ldfrac{di}{dt} = V_{DCBus}\]

Taking

    \[L = 400 mu H, di = 17, V_{DCBus} = 400V\]

the time is 17 microseconds. And taking

    \[CDelta V_{DC} = 0.5I_{pk}(Delta t)\]

I get C = 36 uF. (Taking voltage ripple as 1% of DC Bus voltage).

But the simulation the drain current does not reach 17 A, and the dt time does not match either. What am I doing wrong here? My main aim is to get 17 A drain current of the lower MOSFET.

This is the drain current. enter image description here

EDIT:- I tried using 340V, L = 100 uH, C = 12.5 uF which should give 17A peak current for the MOSFET being turned on for 5 microseconds, but I got this, (blue is the drain current).
