Envelope simulation by SPICE-compatible models of linear electric circuits driven by modulated signals Academic Article uri icon


  • SPICE-compatible equivalent circuits were developed to facilitate the analysis and envelope simulation of electric circuits driven by modulated signals. The circuits are based on a novel complex phasor-domain transformation. The proposed method facilitates simulation of any general linear circuit driven by a modulated signal such as amplitude modulation, frequency modulation, or phase modulation. Simulation time by the proposed envelope simulation is much faster than the full cycle-by-cycle simulation of the original circuit and excitation.
