    Abstract

    The pseudo-transient method is discussed in this paper as one of practical methods to find DC operating points of nonlinear circuits when the Newton-Raphson method fails. The mathematical description for this method is presented and an effective pseudo-transient algorithm utilizing compound pseudo-elements is proposed. Numerical examples are demonstrated to prove that our algorithm is able to avoid the oscillation problems effectively and also improve the simulation efficiency.
