Need Tech help with 6.0 turbo install

I need some tech help related to the electronic parts of a 6.0 turbo. I know that it uses an electronic valve to control oil pressure to a cylinder that changes the pitch of the vanes. and I know that the valve works on a duty cycle and I know how to manipulate the duty cycle to get the desired vane pitch.
what I need to know is how long does the valve stay open at any given %duty cycle? For example, at 50% duty cycle how long is the valve energized?

I am building a standalone controller so I can play around with bolting one of these into my OBS. I have the computer built, I just need to write the code and plumb the turbo.
