1N4007, Diode

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.
