Controlled Current Source

Ideal current source driven by input signal


Electrical Sources

  • Controlled Current Source block


The Controlled Current Source block represents an ideal current source that is powerful enough to maintain the specified current through it regardless of the voltage across the source.

The output current is I = Is, where Is is the numerical value presented at the physical signal port.

The positive direction of the current flow is indicated by the arrow.


The block has one physical signal input port and two electrical conserving ports associated with its electrical terminals.
