Voltage-Controlled Voltage Source

Linear voltage-controlled voltage source


Electrical Sources

  • Voltage-Controlled Voltage Source block


The Voltage-Controlled Voltage Source block models a linear voltage-controlled voltage source, described with the following equation:



VOutput voltage
KVoltage gain
V(+),V(-)Voltages presented at the + and – control ports

To use the block, connect the + and – ports on the left side of the block (the control ports) to the control voltage source. The two ports on the right side of the block (the output ports) generate the output voltage. Polarity is indicated by the + and – signs.


To set the priority and initial target values for the block variables prior to simulation, use the Variables tab in the block dialog box (or the Variables section in the block Property Inspector). For more information, see Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables.


Voltage gain K

The change in the output voltage divided by the change in the control voltage that causes it. The default value is 1.


The block has four electrical conserving ports. Connections + and – on the left side of the block are the control ports. The other two ports are the electrical terminals that provide the output voltage. Polarity is indicated by the + and – signs.
