Linear Circuit Transfer Function : An Introduction to Fast Analytical Techniques

by  Christophe Basso  - 06-01-2016 

"Linear Circuit Transfer Function : An Introduction to Fast Analytical Techniques" is a book recently published by Wiley in the IEEE-press imprint and authored by Christophe Basso, technical Fellow at ON Semiconductor. Whether you are in power electronics, signal transmission, filtering, RF or even digital control, this book will teach you how to determine a transfer function by building on what you have learned at the university but applied in a different manner. By looking at the time constants of a given passive or active circuit considered in different conditions, you can unveil a complicated transfer function expressed in a meaningful form in a swift and efficient manner. From a complicated circuit difficult to solve at once, the author shows how to split it into a succession of smaller and simpler sketches that you can individually study. Once you assemble the pieces, the transfer function appears in a so-called low-entropy form.

Starting from the basics of circuit analysis with a refresh on classical theorems, the book slowly increases complexity and teaches you how to solve 1st to nth order circuits through numerous documented examples (all have a Mathcad® file you can freely download). Each chapter contains a set of 10 solved exercises which will let you test your understanding of the topic. Written in a didactic way, this book will accompany the student by offering a different perspective on circuit analysis but also the engineer who needs a powerful tool to quickly analyze complicated electrical circuits in his daily tasks.

Hello Christophe. I'm a fan of your work, I got two of your books and by reading below, I'm now aware that you make the Mathcad files available for us. I jumped right away to download the zip file and found something that is puzzling me. You define the function II(x,y) to compute the parallel of two elements but further in your sheet, you use II as an operator, not as a function which is great! How did you manage to do that? Regards. Sergio.

Is there a way I can send you a Mathcad 15 file with a question? I enjoyed your book and am glad to see others use classical Mathcad. Thanks.

Hello Julian, thank you for leaving a comment. The book is truly about linear circuits without focus on a particular field of applications like switching converters or control loop. I do not teach how to synthesise circuits but I am giving the tools to analyse passive and active circuits by determining their time constants in two conditions: excitation reduced to 0 and when the response is nulled. With this simple approach, I show how, very often, you can determine the transfer function of passive circuits just by inspection, without writing a line of algebra. I describe the technique in a very smooth way, spending time on simple examples and offering means to test the acquired skill at the end of each chapter. I found that considering the physical properties of a circuit (the time constants) truly provided insights on how the circuit works and what kind of response it may deliver. If more details are needed, you can have a look at the introductory seminar I gave at APEC this year as it covers some of the materials I explore in the book ( Regards, Christophe.

Greetings, Christophe, How is the content different or better to books on network synthesis and analysis, eg. Kuo, Anderson & Vongpanitlerd, Wadwha, or feedback control systems, eg, Dorf, or Stefani et al.? Regards, Julian
