Fast Analytical Techniques – 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.
“…the extended and new techniques described in this book are an indispensable set of tools for linear electronic circuit analysis and design…The book is a very timely and welcome one and deserves to be widely used. The numerous problems and worked examples in this book make it an ideal textbook for senior/graduate courses or a reference book that will play a significant role in enhancing students’ understanding of circuit operation.” Current Engineering Practice
