- photon of light hits ps I and causes electrons to be excited from ps I
- e- move across electron transport chain
- fall in energy used to pump protons from stroma to thylakoid lumen
- causes electrochemical gradient to be formed as more H+ in thylakoid lumen than stroma
- they diffuse down back into stroma via channel protein associated with ATP synthase
- when they pass through ATP + Pi synthesised to produce ATP
- electrons return back to ps I
- key point is no red NADP is made as it returns to the photosystem

sounds like that is right out of the CGP revision guide

Yeah cyclic photophosphorylation occurs when there's not enough NADP to take the electrons that're excited from photosystem 1, so the electrons just hop down the electron transport chain again - allowing more ATP to be produced.
