    re-load SPICE results and update the voltage source Reply

    Hi,

    I have a DC voltage source VN connected a network of components.

    I want to run the spice simulation for t=10 seconds and save the results.

    but later, I want to load this circuit exactly as it was at t=10 (every voltage, current, everything the same, as if the simulation was not ever stopped), change the value of VN, and resume the simulation.

     Is this thing possible?

    Take a look at Checkpoints, see "Using Checkpoints" page 536 of the PSpice Users Guide, pspug.pdf in the doc\pspug directory of the installation.

     Hi,

    Thanks for the quick reply. 

    Checkpoints work, but changing the voltage source has no effect. apparantly excitations can not be changed using this method. any suggestions?!

     doesn't work with VDC, but with VPULSE and VPWL:)

    Thanks again
