NI Multisim 14.0.1

Issue Details

I have a Multisim design with a Transformer CT Rated component connected to an AC_POWER source. When I run the simulation the transformer outputs two smoke puffs and is replace by an icon with shorted outputs.

 

What does the smoke puffs out of the transformer mean?

Solution

The smoke puffs out of the secondary winding at simulation time mean that the winding got damaged.

 

Due to a bug in Multisim 14.0.0, you may get this behavior even when any of the component parameters is exceeded. This issue was fixed in Multisim 14.0.1, therefore if you experience this behavior update to Multisim 14.0.1 or newer.
