Small Signal Simulation in the s-Plane
EDN
F.Poullet, G.Depeyrot, F.Espalieu

Small Signal Simulation in the s-Plane Frédéric Poullet, Gilles Depeyrot, Florian Espalieu In analog circuit design, small-signal analysis is one of the first steps for studying the stability of the circuit or obtaining the transfer function (voltage gain, trans-impedance, power rejection, etc.). This analysis linearizes all of the non-linear devices in the circuit; the resultant …

Challenges of Monitoring High-voltage Battery Packs in Hybrid and Electric Vehicles
W.Guo, C.Domingues
June 2011 GSA Forum

Worldwide concerns of climate change and oil supply have triggered great interest in the electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid EV (HEV) segment of the automotive market. This rapid growth segment is also stimulated by the development of rechargeable batteries. As these “green” vehicles are powered by high-voltage (HV) battery packs consisting of hundreds of series-connected …
