`* indicates a secondary parameter`

Although all the Ln parameters except L0 technically do not have units of
inductance, they are treated as if they do. For example, if L2 = 0.1 and project
units are nH, it is evaluated as 0.1·10^{-9} H. This is
done to simplify parameter extraction.

The flux Φ(V) is scaled in proportion to SC.

The inductance is given by

And the corresponding flux by

If I < ITH,

Node 1 is the positive terminal.
