    Hello,

    I am extremely new to circuits and circuit simulation software. I am trying to make a circuit that uses a voltage controlled voltage source(I believe), but the image that PSPICE wants me to use is not what I have written down on the drawn one. there are 4 inputs/outputs on PSPICE, while normally there is just one on either side. How should I go about doing this? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    An example which can be simulated in any Spice...

    V(out1) = V(out2).

    The netlist should work in PSpice.

    Thank you for the reply, but I'm afraid I don't really understand what you are saying. I am trying to make a circuit with a VCVS. Here is what shows up when I try to do this:

    And the item on the right is what I am used to: [​IMG]This isn't the circuit I am making by the way.

    Here is how to put that circuit into LTSpice. It should be similar in PSpice. 141b.gif

    The +- input terminals of the VCVS are explicitly connected with wires to the nodes that control them, observing polarity. The A parameter is equivalent to little a.
