I'm looking for a way to model a frequency dependent resistor in PSPICE
(ORCad). I have some empirical data for a load which changes resistance
(real part of impedance) with frequency. The changes are non-linear and are
not monotonic. Prefer to use a lookup table if that is a possibility.

Hi Jason,

Take a look at the Gfreq device. If you think of a resistor as a
voltage controlled current source (i.e. current depends on voltage,
right!) then wire one of these with the two 'top' pins (in+ and out+)
together, and the two 'bottom' pins (in- and out-) together, and you
have a device that senses the voltage across itself. You then enter
your table of values in it, and it should work!

The following work in PSpice and LTSpice. The data is entered as
complex admittance. You don't need to use a subcircuit as shown in the
example. There is also a method of using a voltage controlled voltage
source and a current meter (V source) if you want to enter the data as
complex impedance. See

Can I give an equation ?

I am trying to use ABM2/I and I am able to use TIME in the equation however I am not able to use freq(or Frequency) in the equation.
