Abstract
Circuit simulators have often been used for power electronic system design. However, most of them are limited in their application class to one with fixed elements because they can only handle programmed or fixed element characteristics. To overcome this disadvantage, a simulator should be flexible enough to handle any combination of characteristics of available mathematical functions and operations. It is a problem how to compute Jacobian elements or partial derivatives with respect to circuit variables. This paper proposes a way to compute the derivatives by using the automatic differentiation method which is simple and accurate. The principle and application examples are described.
