# PSPICE SYNTAX & COMMAND SUMMARY

### L - Inductor

```General Format:

L|name| |+ node| |- node| {model name} |value|
+     {IC = |initial value|}

L defines an inductor.  |+ node| and |- node| define the polarity
of positive voltage drop.  Positive current flows from the |+ node|
thru the device and out the |- node|.

|value| can be positive or negative but not 0.

{model name} is optional.  If left out the inductor has an
inductance of |value| henries.

If {model name} is included,  then the total inductance is :
Ltot=|value|*L*(1+IL1*I+IL2*I^2)*(1+TC1*(T-Tnom)+TC2*(T-Tnom)^2)
where L, IL1, IL2, TC1, and TC2 are defined in the model declaration.
T is the temperature of simulation.  Tnom is the nominal temperature
(27ˇC unless specified by .OPTIONS TNOM)

{IC = |initial value|} is optional and, if used, defines the
initial guess for the current thru the inductor when PSPICE
attempts to find the bias point.

Model Parameters :
Name     Description
-------  -------------------------------------------------------
L        inductance multiplier
Default value = 1
IL1      linear current coefficient
Default value = 0 ; Units = amp^-1
IL1      quadratic current coefficient
Default value = 0 ; Units = amp^-2
TC1      linear temperature coefficient
Default value = 0 ; Units = ˇC^-1
TC2      quadratic temperature coefficient
Default value = 0 ; Units = ˇC^-2

Example:

L1 1 2 10m
defines an inductor between nodes 1 and 2 with inductance of 10mH.
