I was trying to use LTSpice to design a circuit and it showed a spike at the transistor which was way above the power rating that I needed to accomplish. I added resistors at the base and the collector to try and limit this spike and ran another simulation of the wattage at the transistor and there was still a spike of several watts. Is this something to be concerned about or could it be a glitch in the program? Is there something I can do to prevent this?
I just looked at the simulation again on the aspect of the current and noticed that the current is a simple square wave and it dips down into the negatives every so often. The voltage is normal from what I an see. Is this a common glitch with LTSpice?
