Simulating diode "snubber"

I would like to simulate such a circuit, but I did not get sane results: Is it realistic that this can be simulated? Any hints what kind of parameters to use?

I changed:

  • Use a time-switch (click on it so see its setting)

  • Change the switch to be initially completing the loop, so it will disconnect at the given time.

  • Give a value for the inductor (that you labeled "The clock".

We need a transient solution simulation. Click on SIMULATE and run the Time-Domain Simulation without changing the setting.
