The output darlington transistors conduct more when they heat which causes them to conduct more then heat more then conduct more then then heat more .... It is called "thermal runaway".
An audio amplifier or opamp use diodes like you did in one circuit or a transistor to replace the diodes to also conduct when they are heated by the darlingtons to

I have ORCAD Capture 16.6. In the software i implemented a darlington circuit taken from the example of an electronics book. The picture of the circuit is attached.
The problem is that when i run the simulation i get double values of all the currents and voltages in the circuit.
Can anyone help me in this regard.

TIP127 = PNP darlington.
A typical use for pullup resistor is to shut off a P device. Whatever is the voltage at its emitter (more positive) terminal, that is the same voltage you should apply to the base. It may be okay to apply a slightly higher voltage, but there is a limit to this. Operating characteristics could be altered.

These are darlington transistors with a voltage drop hardly below 1V. A suitable MOSFET is clearly the better solution. Unfortunately you didn't mention the switched load current, but there are many "logic level" MOSFETs that fully switch on with 2 or 2.5 V Vgs.

You find similar circuits in LM317 data sheets. Using a darlington doesn't make much sense, at least for output currents up to 10 A. Better use a regular PNP power transistor for lower voltage drop.

A TIP120 is not a single transistor, it nis two transistors connected as a darlington.
Your circuit has nothing to limit the LED current so the LEDs will blow up.
The maximum allowed current in a TIP120 is only 5A so you should use a powerful Mosfet for 25A.

if output is collector, Zout is very high only due to leakage // Rc of the current sink. (NPN) so Zout on CB and CE is the same but ends being just the load resistor only.
Base Input Zin=hFE*(Rbe + Re) where the latter is chosen to be larger than Rbe. So it can be high with a darlington or low with Re= zero Ohm

The power darlington transistors need heatsinks. If the output voltage swing is as high as 8V RMS then the output power is 8W into 8 ohms and each darlington heats with almost 2W.

That is a darlington circuit, you could use a darlington-output opto and get rid of that external transistor. Not really sure what that diode is for. Sometimes a resistor put there to speed things up, as a darlington is relatively slow to turn off. Maybe it's there to sink leakage current from the input transistor.

Most opamps have emitter-follower darlington output transistors. Then they do not saturate, instead their emitter output follows the base with a 0.7V to 0.8V voltage drop. A darlington is two emitter-followers in series so of course each one produces a 1.5V voltage drop. Then with a plus and minus 5V supply the maximum output swing is plus and minu

The logic high output voltage from a very old 7408 TTL logic IC is much too low for your circuit where the darlington emitter-followers reduce the output voltage even more. It also has much too low current to saturate your darlingtons. The datasheet for the 7408 shows an output high of only 2.4V to 3.6V at a maximum of only 0.8mA.
