I have a somewhat standard in-rush current limiter. I can see intuitively how it works but am trying to get a value for the reduced inrush. LTSPICE, which is what I am using, models the steady state current fine with limited output capacitance and a load of 4.5ohms. When I add in the capacitance and the limiter the output voltage drops to 0v and 0 current which is fine except I should be drawing current. Does anyone have an inrush current circuit that works or can anyone tell me why LTSPICE can't predict the inrush? The load is a microprocessor circuit not a motor.
