Three-phase impedance

**Library:**Simscape / Electrical / Passive / RLC Assemblies

The RLC (Three-Phase) block models a three-phase impedance with two three-phase connections. Each of the three identical impedance components can include any combination of a resistor (R), capacitor (C), and inductor (L), connected in series or in parallel.

Define the values for the R, L, and C components by specifying the appropriate block
parameters. Do not set the parameter values to zero or infinity to remove terms;
instead, select the correct option for the **Component structure**
parameter.

For certain combinations of R, L, and C, for some circuit topologies, specify parasitic resistance or conductance values that help the simulation to converge numerically. These parasitic terms ensure that an inductor has a small parallel resistive path and that a capacitor has a small series resistance.

The following two tables list the block parameters for each **Component
structure**, based on the selected
**Parameterization** option:

Use the **Variables** tab to specify the priority and initial
target values for the block variables before simulation. For more information, see
Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables.

The **Variables** tab is not visible if you set
**Component structure** to `R`
