Nonlinear
element
Linear circuit
Look at circuits with a nonlinear element like this:
A nonlinear element with its own IV relationship, attached to a linear circuit with its own IV relationship.
To find the solution graphically,
INL
graph the nonlinear IV relationship,
fL(VNL)
graph the linear IV relationship in terms of INL and VNL (reflect over yaxis),
x
fNL(VNL)
VNL
and find the intersection: the voltage across and current through the nonlinear element.
