Implementation Details

where i is the current in the controlled source and v is the control voltage. The qn coefficients are the Qn parameters of the model.

Since the qn are evaluated at a particular DC bias voltage, DC bias is implicit in the model. Thus, DC bias must not be included in the circuit.
