 Potentiometer - MapleSim Help

Potentiometer  Description The Potentiometer component models a potentiometer with the sliding contact placed between ${\mathrm{pin}}_{n}$ ($r=0$) and ${\mathrm{pin}}_{p}$ ($r=1$), dependent on either the parameter ${r}_{\mathrm{constant}}$ or the signal input $r$. The total resistance $R$ is temperature dependent. Equations ${R}_{n}=R\left(1+\mathrm{\alpha }\left({T}_{\mathrm{hp}}-{T}_{\mathrm{ref}}\right)\right)\mathrm{min}\left(1,\mathrm{max}\left(0,{r}_{\mathrm{int}}\right)\right)$ ${R}_{p}=R\left(1+\mathrm{\alpha }\left({T}_{\mathrm{hp}}-{T}_{\mathrm{ref}}\right)\right)\left(1-\mathrm{min}\left(1,\mathrm{max}\left(0,{r}_{\mathrm{int}}\right)\right)\right)$ ${v}_{n}-{v}_{\mathrm{contact}}={R}_{n}{i}_{n}$ ${v}_{p}-{v}_{\mathrm{contact}}={R}_{p}{i}_{p}$ ${i}_{p}+{i}_{n}+{i}_{\mathrm{contact}}=0$ $\mathrm{LossPower}=\left({v}_{p}-{v}_{\mathrm{contact}}\right){i}_{p}+\left({v}_{n}-{v}_{\mathrm{contact}}\right){i}_{n}$ ${T}_{\mathrm{hp}}=\left\{\begin{array}{cc}{T}_{\mathrm{heatPort}}& \mathrm{Use Heat Port}\\ T& \mathrm{otherwise}\end{array}$ Variables
