Model resistor for circuit envelope analysis

**Library:**RF Blockset / Circuit Envelope / Elements

The Resistor block models a resistor within the RF Blockset™ circuit envelope simulation environment. For an introduction to RF simulation, see the example, Simulate High Frequency Components.

The block implements the relation

$$v(t)=Ri(t)$$

where:

*R*represents the resistance, as a function of temperature.*i*(*t*) represents the current through the capacitor at time*t*.*v*(*t*) represents the voltage across the terminals of the capacitor at time*t*.

RF Blockset current and voltage signals consist of in-phase
(*I _{k}*) and quadrature (

$$\begin{array}{c}i(t)={\displaystyle \sum _{\left\{{f}_{k}\right\}}\left({i}_{{I}_{k}}(t)+j\cdot {i}_{{Q}_{k}}(t)\right){e}^{j(2\pi {f}_{k})t}}\\ v(t)={\displaystyle \sum _{\left\{{f}_{k}\right\}}\left({v}_{{I}_{k}}(t)+j\cdot {v}_{{Q}_{k}}(t)\right){e}^{j(2\pi {f}_{k})t}}\end{array}$$
