has someone got a spice model for an incandescent lamp
i.e. 100 W/230 V?

Here's one that works with PSpice. You may need to convert it to
"poly" notation to get it to work with other "Spices".

*VO=NOMINAL OPERATING VOLTAGE
*RCOLD=FILAMEMT RESISTANCE MEASURED AT ROOM TEMP (300K)
*TAU=CURRENT TIME CONSTANT AFTER A 0 (zero) TO VO STEP IS APPLIED
.SUBCKT LAMP 1 2 PARAMS: VO=28 IO=25m RCOLD=112 TAU=22m TAMB=300
H1 6 0 VML 1
RH1 6 0 1
GP 0 4 VALUE={V(6)*V(1,2)}
*V(4,0) = FILAMENT TEMPERATURE IN KELVINS
RT 4 5 {300*(VO-IO*RCOLD)/(IO*IO*VO*RCOLD)}
CT 4 5 {TAU*IO*IO*VO*RCOLD/(300*(VO-IO*RCOLD))}
VAMB 5 0 {TAMB}
El 7 0 1 2 300
R1 7 0 1
E2 8 0 VALUE={V(4)*RCOLD}
R2 8 0 1
E3 10 0 7 9 10MEG
R3 10 0 1
E4 9 0 VALUE={V(8)*V(10)}
R4 9 0 1
GR 1 3 10 2 1
VML 3 2 0
.ENDS LAMP

But most other Spices out there are of course, Spice3 or XSpice, which dont
really need/use the poly() statement.

so,

E4 9 0 VALUE={V(8)*V(10)} should be converted to

B4 9 0 V=V(8)*V(10)

i.e. change the E source to a B source
Remove the {}
change VALUE to V.

Hmmm? In PSpice, device "B" is a GaAsFet, so be cautious as to what
flavors of Spice you apply Kevin's suggestion.
