HVL F43AM Flash, Frequency, Time and Power please explain anyone?

Hi,

I got Sony flash HVL F43AM and reading the users manual. There are some terms frequency, power, time for setting. I want to set for multiple flash which I found out but these terms Frequency, Time and Power are not clear. I do not want flash to be too bright because I will be near to the subject in the festival. What settings should I make?

Right now right now I have chosen Frequency 5, Time 5 and Power 1/16 is it ok?

Otherwise just explain what does those Frequency, Time and Power do?

Thank you in advance

If i'm right you set your flash to fire at each trigger a puls of 5 flashes with a frequency rate 0f 5 per second at 1/16 power.

frequency in the number of flashes. in this case the flash will go off 5 times. in the time of one second with the flash power reduced to 1/16th of full power.
