## Description

The PVCCS2 (Two-Input Polynomial Voltage-Controlled Current Source) block represents a current source whose output current value is a polynomial function of the voltages across the pairs of controlling input ports. This equation describes the current through the source as a function of time:

`${I}_{out}={p}_{1}+{p}_{2}*{V}_{in1}+{p}_{3}*{V}_{in2}+{p}_{4}*{V}_{in1}^{2}+{p}_{5}{V}_{in1}*{V}_{in2}+{p}_{6}*{V}_{in2}^{2}+\dots$`

where:

• Vin1 is the voltage across the first pair of input ports.

• Vin2 is the voltage across the second pair of input ports.

• p is the Polynomial coefficients parameter value.

The block uses a small conductance internally to prevent numerical simulation issues. The conductance connects the output ports of the device and has a conductance GMIN:

• By default, GMIN matches the GMIN parameter of the Environment Parameters block, whose default value is `1e–12`.

• To change GMIN, add an Environment Parameters block to your model and set the GMIN parameter to the desired value.

## Parameters

expand all

The polynomial coefficients that relate the input voltage to the output current, as described in the preceding section.

Specify if the current source includes a parallel conductance. The value of the parallel conductance, GMIN, depends on whether your model contains an Environment Parameters block.

This table shows the possible values of the parallel conductance, GMIN:
