Abstract

This chapter is devoted to present numerical simulation results obtained with the siconos platform, on several simple circuits: the first circuit has been built to show that conventional analog simulators fail to converge; the other circuits are classical diode-bridge wave rectifiers, and the last one is a circuit that exhibits a sliding mode. In this chapter and in Chap. 8, five simulation software packages were used: This chapter is devoted to present numerical simulation results obtained with the siconos platform, on several simple circuits: the first circuit has been built to show that conventional analog simulators fail to converge; the other circuits are classical diode-bridge wave rectifiers, and the last one is a circuit that exhibits a sliding mode. In this chapter and in Chap. 8, five simulation software packages were used:
siconos:

the platform developed at INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes (France) dealing with nonsmooth dynamical systems with dedicated time integrators and algorithms to solve sets of equations and inequalities (for instance LCP: linear complementarity problems).

ngspice:

an open-source version of the original SPICE3F5 software developed by Berkeley university. Even if this version may differ from existing commercial ones, it shares with them a common set of models and the solving algorithms belong also to the same class that deals with regular functions.

smash:

a commercial version of spice developed by Dolphin Integration (see http://www.dolphin.fr).

eldo:

a commercial version of spice with Newton-Raphson and OSR (one step relaxation) algorithms developed by Mentor Graphics (http://www.mentor.com).

plecs:

a simulink/matlab toolbox dedicated to the simulation of power electronics circuits (see http://www.plexim.com). The models and algorithms come from the hybrid approach. In our work the freely available demonstration version of plecs has been used.

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
