Step Current

Step current source  Description The Step Current source generates a step current with zero rise time. Equations $i={i}_{p}=-{i}_{n}={I}_{0}+{I}_{h}\left\{\begin{array}{cc}0& t<{T}_{0}\\ 1& \mathrm{otherwise}\end{array}$ $v={v}_{p}-{v}_{n}$ Variables

 Name Units Description Modelica ID $v$ $V$ Voltage drop between the two pins v ${v}_{x}$ $V$ Voltage at pin $x$, $x\in \left\{n,p\right\}$ x.v $i$ $A$ Current flowing from pin $p$ to pin $n$ i ${i}_{x}$ $A$ Current into pin $x$, $x\in \left\{n,p\right\}$ x.i Connections

 Name Description Modelica ID $p$ Positive pin p $n$ Negative pin n Parameters

 Name Default Units Description Modelica ID ${T}_{0}$ $0$ $s$ Time offset (start time) startTime ${I}_{h}$ $1$ $A$ Height of the step I ${I}_{0}$ $0$ $A$ Current offset offset Modelica Standard Library The component described in this topic is from the Modelica Standard Library.
