Network Analysis and Simulation
Transient circuit solutions using difference equations. Applications to PSpice and the EMTP. Frequency dependent components. Nonlinear components. Causality and time delays in transfer functions. Wave propagation equations for transmission lines modelling. Coupled waves decomposition. The Z-transform to assess accuracy and stability of discrete-time systems. Numerical oscillations.
This course will teach the students how to solve very large circuits, that include frequency dependent components, nonlinear elements, and switching devices, at very fast execution speeds, including real time.
Required Skills: undergraduate degree in electrical or computer engineering.
