9780511613791: Fast Analytical Techniques for Electrical and Electronic Circuits

The only current method of circuit analysis known to most engineers and students is nodal, or loop, analysis. Although it works well for obtaining numerical solutions, the method is almost useless for obtaining analytical solutions in all but the simplest cases. In this unique book, Vorpérian describes remarkable alternative techniques to solve complicated linear circuits in symbolic form and obtain meaningful analytical answers for any transfer function or impedance. Although not intended to replace traditional computer-based methods, these techniques provide engineers with a powerful set of tools for tackling circuit design problems. They also enhance understanding of circuit operation, making this an ideal course book, and numerous problems and worked examples are included. Originally developed by Professor David Middlebrook and others at the California Institute of Technology, the techniques are now widely taught at institutions and companies worldwide.

Book Description:

The most widely used method of circuit analysis--nodal or loop analysis--works well for obtaining numerical solutions, but is almost useless for obtaining analytical solutions in all but the simplest cases. In this unique book, Vorpérian describes a remarkable alternative technique to solve, almost by inspection, complicated linear circuits in symbolic form and obtain meaningful analytical answers for any transfer function or impedance. Although not intended to replace traditional methods, these techniques provide students and practicing engineers with a powerful set of tools for tackling circuit design problems.

About the Author:

Vatché Vorpérian received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 1984 from the California Institute of Technology and joined the faculty of Electrical Engineering at Virginia Tech in the same year. He was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor in 1990. In 1991 he joined the Jet Propulsion Laboratory where he is currently a senior member of the technical staff. His expertise is in the field of power electronics in which he has published over thirty-five conference and journal papers. He has also contributed to the modeling analysis and design of such micro-electromechanical devices as the micro-gyroscope and micro-seismometer. He has taught many professional advancement courses to industry.
