Re: [Phys-L] LC circuit simulation

Perhaps this is a correctly simulated instance of "Mandated Energy Dissipation". EG., when a battery charges a capacitor, 1/2 of the battery-produced energy must be dissipated.

Subject: [Phys-L] LC circuit simulation

I am using an old numerical simulation program called SCEPTRE to
simulate a serial LC circuit plus a DC battery. (without R)

In a long run the current goes to 0 and half the energy is loss. That
kind of simulations do not "conserve energy".

Do anyone here knows how to use other programs as SPICE? How SPICE or
other programs handle this case?

Thank you very much
