2.17  FAULT command

2.17.1  Syntax

fault partlabel=value ...

2.17.2  Purpose

Temporarily change a component value.


This command quickly changes the value of a component, usually with the intention that you will not want to save it.

If you apply this command to a nonlinear or otherwise strange part, it becomes ordinary and linear until the fault is removed.

It is an error to fault a model call.

If several components have the same label, the fault value applies to all of them. (They will all have the same value.)

The unfault command restores the old values.

2.17.4  Example

fault R66=1k
R66 now has a value of 1k, regardless of what it was before.

fault C12=220p L1=1u
C12 is 220 pf and L1 is 1 uH, for now.

Clears all faults. It is back to what it was before.
