Current Sources

  A current source transports charge from one node to another. A sometimes helpful element is an electron injector. It is a current source which emits single electrons at regular or irregular time intervals. Current sources are assumed to have an infinite internal resistance. Hence, for the electrostatic energy calculation they are open branches.
