    PSPICE Simulation Error "Extra Text On Line" Reply

    Hi,

     Working on an audio amplifier project for school and I'm trying to simulate the circuit in Pspice. When I actually go to run the simulation, I keep getting an "Extra Text On Line" error. Here's the output sim file:

    Re: PSPICE Simulation Error "Extra Text On Line" Reply
    "H" is not a recognised value multiplier. PSpice knows that type the AC Sweep parameters need. You should typically only use values and not specify the types for the Simulation Profile parameters. In this case a Start of 10 and an end of 1Meg would be fine, 1000k if you must, no spaces between the values and multipliers.

    Re: PSPICE Simulation Error "Extra Text On Line" Reply

    Hi!! 

    I'm trying to simulate a power supply system, consisting of a sollar cell, an three dc-dc converters and I also get the same error when I start the simulation!! At first I thought the problem was with the name of each part in every schematic so I named every resistor for example with a different name, but that wasn't the problem!! 

    Any ideas on how I can fix this?? Here is what I get!!

     Thanks a lot!!

    It looks like you H-Block, or reference, is named "Solar Cell", with a space, try renaming this to "Solar_Cell", or something more simple like "SC"

    Re: PSPICE Simulation Error "Extra Text On Line" Reply

    First of all thanks a lot for your guick response!! :)

    I changed the name and you were right, these kind of errors disappeared!! Yet
    I get another error this time, saying "Less than 2 connections at Node N___"

    It's a common mistake as I can see from a little research I did, but I didn't find somewhere the possible reason!!

    The two nodes that seem to have the problem are the input nodes of my H-Block. The input is a DC voltage source and I also put two 1u resistors before connecting to the H-Block... grounding is also correct (I suppose) and the ports are correctly named!!

    Any ideas about this?? :)

    Get the Project Manager window active, select the DSN file entry within it and then File>Archive Project, create a single archive file and attach it to the post. This will contain all the design info and permit a "proper" answer to the question.

    I hope that's what you mean!! It's the option "archive project" when I press File on Capture CIS.

    Re: PSPICE Simulation Error "Extra Text On Line" Reply

    It looks like you were a "bit keen" when renaming "Solar Cell" to "Solar_Cell" for the hierarchical block. The name of the schematic folder that defines the block is still called "Solar Cell", this name is actually OK in this case, but it has therefore become disconnected. Since you got this far, you could just rename the schematic folder from "Solar Cell" to "Solar_Cell" in the project window and things will then work. It looks like you are using a pretty old version so there is little point in attaching my results.

    Hahaha, to be honest I don't like acronyms that much!!! Yes my version is old, its the one used in the university lab so I have to work with this!! I' ll try what you said and I hope it finally works!!! Again thanks a lot for your help and your time!!!! :)

    Re: PSPICE Simulation Error "Extra Text On Line" Reply

    Well, I tried this, it didn't work, so I changed the related names with "SC" this time... Yet the problem remains, though now the nodes that appear to have a problem are not the inputs of the block, but two nodes inside the SC schematic, namely the input nodes of the voltage controlled current source!! I attached the new design if you want to see!! Do you think remaking the whole project from scratch would make any difference??

     Sorry to bother you that much my friend, I owe you a drink!! :)

    Re: PSPICE Simulation Error "Extra Text On Line" Reply

    OK, this time the SC block is fine but, in the other blocks, you have duplicated the "Input" and "Output" names so those pins / ports are "simply shorted" together. If you use the "Input_1" / "Input_2" and "Output_1" /"Output_2" pin / port names, as you have for the SC block, everything will work as expected for the "other" blocks.

    You have used parts from the "regular" libraries, these don't have the necessary properties for the simulation netlist, hence the messages. Use the parts from the "Eval.olb" if you are evaluating PSpice, or from "tools\Capture\library\pspice" OLBs if you have a licensed installation.
