Abstract

This paper presents a nonlinear circuit simulation program called EHBSim implemented in Matlab. This program offers as simulation methods the Harmonic Balance method, and especially the Nonlinear Envelope method. Equations systems that allow the simulation of any circuit architecture were also used. The program has original algorithms implemented to solve the associated circuit equation. The description of the Nonlinear Envelope Method as well as a performance comparison between those two simulation methods, through the analysis of multitone excited circuits, are also carried out.
