Computation of transition matrices of positive linear electrical circuits


  • Tadeusz Kaczorek Bialystok University of Technology



positive, linear, electrical circuits, calculation, transition matrix


A method is proposed for calculation of transition matrices of positive electrical circuits. It is shown that if the transition matrix is presented as finite series of the Metzler matrix with real distinct eigenvalues then the coefficients of the series are nonnegative function of time. The method is applied to positive linear electrical circuits.
