Reference for measuring voltage of other nodes in floating electrical network

The Floating Reference block provides an electrical reference that you can use to measure the voltage of other nodes in a floating electrical network.
Unlike the Electrical Reference block, which provides a connection to ground, this block uses a capacitance to block the DC current.
To set the priority and initial target values for the block variables prior to simulation, use the Initial Targets section in the block dialog box or Property Inspector. For more information, see Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables.
Nominal values provide a way to specify the expected magnitude of a variable in a model. Using system scaling based on nominal values increases the simulation robustness. Nominal values can come from different sources, one of which is the Nominal Values section in the block dialog box or Property Inspector. For more information, see Modify Nominal Values for a Block Variable.
n — DC current is zero
Electrical conserving port where the DC current is zero. Use this port to measure the voltage of other nodes in a floating electrical network.
Capacitance — Capacitance that blocks DC current
1 uF (default) | positive scalar
Represents the physical capacitance between the floating network and the electrical ground. This capacitance blocks the DC current.
Parasitic parallel conductance — Small parasitic effects
0 1/Ohm (default) | nonnegative scalar
Represents small parasitic effects. A nonzero value is required for the simulation of some circuit topologies.
