Difference between thyristor I(tsm) and I T(AV)

For example I have a capacitor send intermittent pulses to a coil

send about 85A for few msec then off for 3-4 seconds (for 5mins)


I was looking for a scr to switch it

i found 40tps12 thyristor


Has I(tsm) 500-600A for 10 msec

And I T(AV) 35A

So should i consider this thyristor can stand with 85A as its I(tsm) up to 600A or can not stand with as its I T(AV) is lower than 85A

Means which should i consider?
