Electrical Simulation Techniques
The features of circuit or electrical simulation are extremely important in mixed-mode simulation as they determine the overall speedup and efficiency of the simulator. This chapter describes the basic theory and foundations for the electrical simulation techniques. First the circuit equations are formulated in Section 2.1 and the standard techniques are described in Section 2.2. The issues pertaining to time step selection and simulation accuracy are also addressed. The limitations of these techniques for large problems are identified and alternative approaches are described in the next chapter.
