  • SPST Switch (Three-Phase) block

Description

The SPST Switch (Three-Phase) block models a three-phase single-throw switch that uses an external signal to connect each phase of port ~1 with the corresponding phase of port ~2 via internal resistance.

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

ConditionBlock BehaviorResistance Parameter Used
vTThresholdThe switch is open. Each phase in the composite three-phase port ~1 connects to the corresponding phase in the port ~2 via large internal resistance.Open conductance
vT >ThresholdThe switch is closed. Each phase in the composite three-phase port ~1 connects to the corresponding phase in the port ~2 via small internal resistance.Closed resistance

Resistance between ports ~1 and ~2 when the switch is closed.

Conductance between ports ~1 and ~2 when the switch is open.

Threshold voltage for the control port vT. When the voltage is above the threshold, the switch is closed.
