Operating Point Analysis

General form:

.OP

The inclusion of this line in an input file directs SPICE to determine the dc operating point of the circuit with inductors shorted and capacitors opened. Note: a DC analysis is automatically performed prior to a transient analysis to determine the transient initial conditions, and prior to an AC small-signal, Noise, and Pole-Zero analysis to determine the linearized, small-signal models for nonlinear devices (see the KEEPOPINFO variable above).
