Hello,

I am trying to make a High Voltage Power pulse generator with
Requirements
Amp output: 15 A
Voltage Output: 100V
Rise: <=1 us
Width: <= 100 um
which is when I came across this schematic


As i was trying to simulate the schematic, I noticed I noticed that could not find the Optocoupler in Pspice:

I was wondering if anyone knew what is the name of this Optocoupler for Pspice simulation or a replacement Optocoupler to simulate it:

If it were me I'd just use any optocoupler model that Pspice already has, ignoring the pin 1, 4, 7 and pin 8 connections. After all, it's only a simulation.

Ok, I'm having now trouble with figuring out what each of these inputs symbolize:

I think the the monitors are where the multi meters or oscilloscopes go in to check the voltages and currents

the HV supply is just the variable DC voltage supply that we set like a battery or a supply and the HV output is just the output of the circuit
I just want to make sure. I am not really sure what the control input actually is. It looks like a square wave input, but how do you add that part on pspice.



Also what types of capacitors are these in terms of Pspice and in general:

Hello,

I am trying to make a High Voltage Power pulse generator with
Requirements
Amp output: 15 A
Peak Voltage : 100V
Rise: <=1 us
Width: <= 100 um
which is when I came across this schematic


I made a Pspice schematic of it that looks like this:

however, when I run the Pspice simulation i get the following error in the pdf document along with the nodes circled in green.
Does anyone know what the problem would be?

After taking off the extra spaces for the troubled capacitors, the main error seemed to have got away, but now the error seems to be with the V2 voltage source and the loop that it is in:

the error says, " ERROR(ORPSIM-15143): Voltage source and/or inductor loop involving V_V2. You may break the loop by adding a series resistance"

How would I solve this?
the original message is in this pdf:
