Regardless of whether you can set it up or not, I don't think that the fine
structure of the irradiation matters too much for long cool-down times.
You could probably account for the duty cycles as an average power, for instance,
if a 4 kW beam is ON 6 h per day, just use a 1 kW beam which is ON 24 h a day.=20
