Charging a Capacitor with High Frequency DC voltage
Until the capacitor is loaded, the time constant will be very long.
The forward voltage of a diode is hardly relevant to power dissipation in this sort of circuit.
I don't understand why there is so much arm waving on this thread. Put the values of the components into a simulator (if the sums are 'too hard') and see what emerges. Of course, the whole thing depends totally on the values of the critical components- like the capacitor, the operating frequency. If the OP can supply them then it can all be solved with standard tools.
Perhaps this should be on the Electrical Engineering Forum.
