x = % of total damage your tc + cyclones provide
└───────────────── (usually in the 80-90% range)
y = % lightning skills damage your wkl provides
z = your pdps
that gives us the formulas:
z * x = a
a * (1+y) = b
z * (1-x) = c
b + c = d
d - z = total pdps your "y" provides unbuffed
d = your real pdps factoring in your "y"
So, I've seen people give opinions and estimates on how much each contribute to EDPS but I wanted to get an idea for myself through a small sample size of testing.
Its definitely relevant to people who are interested in buying Radiance's with FoT or SW damage, and which is worth more.
The premise is that if kill times are cut in half or more when Sweeping Wind is added to Thunderclap, that it is indeed worth more than 50% of total EDPS.

gear + stats used = http://d3up.com/b/118257
My weaker 3 LS WKL, Reclamation, and BoH were used to help stay alive with TC only runs to eliminate dps downtime.
So heres some small sample size testing results I've written down:
MP5 Azmodan HP = 25,738,048
Unbuffed DPS = 82,999
BW Buffed DPS = 95,449
APS = 2.10 & 2.39 [+27% IAS]
CC = 33%
- TC only kill times & EDPS:
- TC & Cylone kill times & EDPS:
So with that in mind TC was worth 349k DPS [53.7%] while SW & Cyclone were worth 301k DPS [46.3%].
I'd be interested to see (if anybody else is willing to try doing some tests) whether the values of each increase or decrease in difference depending on gear quality. Since mine isn't that great in the grand scheme of things lol.
