AC Current Source
Ideal sinusoidal current source
Simscape / Foundation Library / Electrical / Electrical Sources
The AC Current Source block represents an ideal current source that maintains sinusoidal current through it, independent of the voltage across its terminals.
The output current is defined by the following equation:
I is current.
I0 is peak amplitude.
f is frequency.
φ is phase shift.
t is time.
The positive direction of the current flow is indicated by the arrow.
+ — Positive terminal
Electrical conserving port associated with the source positive terminal.
- — Negative terminal
Electrical conserving port associated with the source negative terminal.
Peak amplitude — Peak current amplitude
1 A (default) | scalar
Peak current amplitude.
Phase shift — Phase shift in angular units
0 deg (default) | scalar
Phase shift in angular units.
Frequency — Current frequency
60 Hz (default) | positive scalar
Current frequency, specified in Hz or units directly convertible to Hz (where Hz is defined as 1/s). For example, kHz and MHz are valid units, but rad/s is not.
