Steady-state analysis of nonlinear networks. Agnew, David George
In this thesis the use of the digital computer in determining the steady-state response of nonlinear networks is investigated. Two classes of such networks, forced oscillating networks and self-oscillating networks, are considered. For the first class, a method of obtaining the network equations is developed, and an algorithm for calculating the numerical solution is obtained. For the second class, the development is restricted to those networks which can be described by [ Formula omitted ] and the previous algorithm is extended to solve this problem. For both classes, a substitution is developed which can expedite the analysis when the nonlinearities are exponential in character. The effectiveness of the methods is demonstrated by examples.
