A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor component that emits light and has the electrical characteristics of a diode. If an electric current is flowing through the diode in forward direction, it emits light with a wavelength that depends on the semiconductor material and doping.
To make the use of the LED as a simple signal indicator easier, FluidSIM allows setting the color independent of the physical characteristics.
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||4|
|Reference current||1 ... 10000 mA||35|
|Resistance in series||0.001 ... 1000 Ohm||12.5|
|Saturation current||1e-15 ... 100 A||1e-12|
