Voltage and Current Sources

After completing this chapter, students should be able to do the following:

•  Define and specify the output variables for AC and transient analysis.

•  Define and specify the magnitude and phase angles of output variables for AC analysis.

•  Define and specify the output variables for noise analysis.

•  Model dependent and independent voltage and current sources.

•  Specify dependent and independent voltage and current sources.

•  Create behavioral modeling of voltage- and current-controlled sources with specifications in the form VALUE, TABLE, LAPLACE, FREQ, or as mathematical functions.
