  • SPDT Switch (Three-Phase) block

Description

The SPDT Switch (Three-Phase) block models a three-phase single-pole double-throw switch that uses an external signal to connect each phase of the port ~1 with the corresponding phase of either port ~2 or ~3.

The table shows how the external signal vT controls the block behavior.

ConditionBlock BehaviorResistance Parameter Used
vT ThresholdEach phase of port ~1 is connected to the corresponding phase of port ~2 via internal resistance. Port ~3 is unconnected.Open conductance (port ~1 to port ~3). Closed resistance (port ~1 to port ~2)
vT > ThresholdEach phase of port ~1 is connected to the corresponding phase of port ~3 via internal resistance. Port ~2 is unconnected.Open conductance (port ~1 to port ~2). Closed resistance (port ~1 to port ~3)
