In this paper, we present simulation techniques to estimate the worst-case voltage variation using a RC model for the power distribution network. Pattern independent maximum envelope currents are used as a periodic input for performing the frequency-domain steady-state simulation of the linear RC circuit to evaluate the worst-case instantaneous voltage drop for the RC power distribution networks. The proposed technique unlike existing techniques, is guaranteed to give the maximum voltage drop… CONTINUE READING
