A piecewise harmonic balance technique for determination of periodic response of nonlinear systems
It is shown that considerable reduction in the size of the computational problem can be achieved by taking advantage of the linearities present in the network. Expand
Passivity verification in delay-based macromodels of electrical interconnects
The proposed approach develops a new algebraic test to check for passivity in macromodels generated using MoC, which can be employed to test for positive-realness in dynamical systems described by algebraic delay-differential equations with discrete commensurate delays. Expand
Efficient passive circuit models for distributed networks with frequency-dependent parameters

Simulation of coupled interconnects using waveform relaxation and transverse partitioning
A new method is presented for efficient simulation of large interconnects based on transverse partitioning and waveform relaxation techniques that is highly suitable for parallel implementation leading to further significant reduction in the computational complexity. Expand
Global passivity enforcement algorithm for macromodels of interconnect subnetworks characterized by tabulated data
The proposed method adopts a global approach for passivity enforcement by ensuring that the passivity correction at a certain region does not introduce new passivity violations at other parts of the frequency spectrum. Expand
