Use of Piecewise Linear Models for Nonlinear Devices when Analyzing Electronic Circuits Process: 1. Guess state of the device 2. Analyze linear circuit 3. Verify State 4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 if verification fails Observations: o Analysis generally simplified dramatically o Approach applicable to wide variety of nonlinear devices o Closed-form solutions give insight into performance of circuit o Usually much faster than solving the nonlinear circuit directly o Wrong guesses in the state of the device do not compromise solution (verification will fail) o Helps to Guess Right the first time Review from Last Time

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

Kiran Temple University Fox School of Business ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
