This simulation shows how a finite (not infinite) parallel internal resistance makes a current source behave in a non-ideal way.


This example is from the Ideal Sources chapter of Ultimate Electronics Book. It shows a DC Sweep simulation which demonstrates that having a finite parallel internal resistance makes the behavior of a current source be non-ideal, because the current now varies as the terminal voltage changes. (An ideal current source has infinite internal resistance.)
