  Tinker said   Tony, would this: schottky diode be OK for your circuit above?

I also have some Allegro (ACS758)Hall effect 100A current sensors plus ginormous capacitors, so building your device is almost done

Oh yes lovely.
Its not really the fast recovery speed we require, but the low forward voltage drop.
That makes the whole thing more efficient, as well as requiring less heat sinking.

I think you will be amazed at how easy it is to reach very high peak currents with so little dc input power.
Cheers,  Tony.
