Description

The Current-Controlled Voltage Source block models a linear current-controlled voltage source, described with the following equation:

where

VVoltage
KTransresistance
I1Current flowing from the + to the – control port

To use the block, connect the + and – ports on the left side of the block (the control ports) to the control current source. The arrow indicates the positive direction of the current flow. The two ports on the right side of the block (the output ports) generate the output voltage. Polarity is indicated by the + and – signs.

Dialog Box and Parameters

Parameters Tab

Transresistance K

Ratio of the voltage between the two output terminals to the current passing between the two control terminals. The default value is 1 Ω.

Variables Tab

Use the Variables tab to set the priority and initial target values for the block variables prior to simulation. For more information, see Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables.

Ports

The block has four electrical conserving ports. Connections + and – on the left side of the block are the control ports. The arrow indicates the positive direction of the current flow. The other two ports are the electrical terminals that provide the output voltage. Polarity is indicated by the + and – signs.
