Units

Special Values

Inputs:

V (voltage)
Z0 (vacuum impedance)  
R (load = V/Ia) Note:  R must be less than RSL for valid result
G (space-charge adjustment) uniform for G=1
         

Outputs:

IA (anode current)

=V/R
Self-Limited Results:        
IASL (self-limited anode current)

ZfSL (self-limited flow impedance)

ICSL (self-limited cathode current)

  RSL (self-limited load impedance)

  =V/IASL
  Upper Branch Results:       Note:  Upper branch gives answers close to Creedon
Zfa (upper flow impedance)

ICa (upper cathode current)

  Lower Branch Results:       Note:  Lower branch result may not be meaningful
Zfb (lower flow impedance)

ICb (lower cathode current)
