R, L, C components


A resistor, inductor or capacitor component is defined by:

  • a name (and a comment)
  • specific characteristics


The name to identify the component is set by the user during the creation of this one.

A comment (optional) can be added to the name.

Passive components: description

Characteristic quantities necessary for the description of the passive components – resistor (R), inductor (L) and capacitor (C) – are presented in the table below.


Current-voltage characteristic

Characteristic quantity

resistor U = R.I R is the value of the resistance (in Ω)
inductor U = jwL.I L is the value of the self-inductance (in H)
capacitor I = jwC.U C is the value of the capacity (in F)
