Notes/Equations
  1. This reset switch is an ideal switch that is closed at time=0 and open for time>0. Its main use is in time domain simulation modes (transient and circuit envelope) to allow the resetting of components such as ideal integrators. Often these blocks that have infinite gain at dc do not allow the circuit simulator to converge, but by keeping them reset at time=0, a valid initial solution can be obtained prior to the actual time domain simulation and then the switch can be opened to observe the time domain response. In steady-state analysis, such as dc or harmonic balance, time is always 0 so this switch remains closed.
