Unformatted text preview: Another way to think of a current source is of a constant speed motor driving a water pump. The constant speed motor will always deliver a constant volume of water per unit time through the pump. This is analogous to a constant ﬂow of electrons per unit time. 1A I V independent current source The independent current source will rise or fall to whatever voltage necessary to maintain a constant current ﬂow. 0.5 1.0 1.5 I1 current magnitude reference designator constant speed motor water pump I1 current source...
