Applications of the Potential Analogy in Network Analysis


Rosen, Harold Alvin (1951) Applications of the Potential Analogy in Network Analysis. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/2249-6Z06.


The analogy existing between linear, lumped parameter network functions and the complex potential function of line charges is applied to various problems in network analysis and synthesis. A means of determining the stream function directly is described. It is shown how the analogy may be used for both steady state and transient analysis when the zeros and poles of the network function are known. In addition, methods of determining the poles of special networks by means of the analogy are described.
