Hi everyone,
I have a serious problem, which I cannot solve myself.
Task: I want to convert a SPICE subcircuit to a Simscape component using the matlab syntax "subcircuit2ssc(filename,target)" The SPICE subcircuit are only related to Inductors and mutual inductors.
.subckt Ckt_model_series 1 2 3 4 5 6
L1 1 4 3.93e-09
L2 2 5 5.35e-09
L3 3 6 5.39e-09
K12 L1 L2 0.38
K13 L1 L3 0.45
K23 L2 L3 0.19
.ends Ckt_model_series
Problem: After converting I get the following message in the .ssc file:
% Users should manually implement the following SPICE commands in order to
% achieve a complete implementation:
% ckt_model_series: K12 l1 l2 0.38
% ckt_model_series: K13 l1 l3 0.45
% ckt_model_series: K23 l2 l3 0.19
This basically means all three inductor coupling are not taken into consideration. According to this link my syntax should be right.
Question: Where is my mistake and how can I manually implement the SPICE commands afterwards? I need this solution for even bigger circuits ...

Hi Florian,
The link states that since SPICE is a rich language, it is not always possible to perform a full conversion without some manual intervention.
You can refer to the below link to see if it helps:

Hi Pranav,
thank you for your reply. Do you have any ideas on how to manually implement the mutual inductors into the Simscape model?
