I set an initial condition current for an inductor in its VALUE attribute as '10m IC=52m', but when I run the analysis, I get -52mA going through the inductor. Why?
The inductor does have polarity, so this condition will have 52mA flow from its plus pin to its minus pin. You can view which pin is which by enabling the Display Pin Names checkbox in the Attribute dialog box. If the polarity is reversed, just rotate the inductor so that the plus pin and the minus pin are swapped, or you can just set the initial condition to -52m.
