A diode allows an electric current to pass in only one direction, while in the opposite direction it acts as an insulator. Therefore, diodes have a forward direction and a reverse direction.
Since version 5.6c the maximum power P_max can be specified. If this value is exceeded during simulation, the diode burns out. For reasons of compatibility with older circuit diagrams, the default value is unrealistically high.
|Maximum power||0.1 ... 100000 W||1000|
|Reference voltage||0.1 ... 100 V||0.7|
|Reference current||1 ... 10000 mA||12.6|
|Resistance in series||0.001 ... 1000 Ohm||0.0341512|
|Saturation current||1e-15 ... 100 A||7.02767e-9|
