From alpha power law,analytical delay model for CMOS inverter is given by

DELAY directly proportional to VDD/(VDD-VTh)^alpha

Using this equation how do i calculate the delay for inverter and what should be the proportionality constant..i have extracted Vthn=0.6 ,Kn=0.0007 alphan=1.5, Kp=0.00049 Vthp=0.5 , alphap=1.1 from MATLAB curve fitting and VDD varies from 0.2V - 0.4V..I m using 16nm LP model file from ASU...output load capacitance is 1aF.. But since Vth is greater then VDD it returns complex values for delay..
