Abstract

The Modelica Standard Library was improved by adding a package of a subset of SPICE3 models which are transformed to the Modelica language. This Spice3 library contains basic models; sources; and four semiconductor devices (diode; BJT; MOSFET level 1; resistor). Extensive tests showed the correctness of model characteristics at simple circuits. Further models already prepared will be added to the Spice3 Modelica Library later on.
