Dynamic DC Voltage Source: DC_V



DC_V combines the functionality of the DCVS and DCVSS into one voltage source.


Name Description Unit Type Default
ID Voltage source ID Text V1
Sweep Voltage sweep type    

Parameter Details

Sweep. Specifies whether DC current is swept. Choices are None, Vector, Linear, Linear (# pts), Log (Dec) and Log (Oct).

Dynamic Parameters

Name Description Unit Type Default
V DC voltage Voltage 1 V
VStart DC voltage start Voltage 0 V
VStop DC voltage stop Voltage 5 V
VStep DC voltage step Voltage 1 V
NumPts Number of swept voltage points   2

Dynamic parameters are parameters whose existence depends on the settings of the static parameters. The following is a list of parameters that can appear for the DC_V depending on the setting of the static Sweep parameter.

Dynamic Parameter Details

V. Appears when Sweep is None or Vector. If Sweep is None, V represents a single DC voltage value. If Sweep is Vector, V represents a vector of swept voltage values.

VStart, VStop. Appears when Signal is Sinusoid and Sweep is Linear, Linear (# pts), Log (Dec) or Log (Oct). Allows you to specify the start and stop voltage values in a voltage sweep.

VStep. Appears when Sweep is Linear. Allows you to specify the voltage step value of a voltage sweep.

NumPts. Appears when Sweep is Linear (# pts), Log (Dec) or Log (Oct). Allows you to specify the number of points in a voltage sweep. For Sweep is Log (Dec) and Log (Oct), this represents the number of points per decade and octave, respectively.
