dc.description.abstract The objective of the study reported in this thesis has been to develop a unified algorithm for the computer-aided design of a wide range of electrical network configurations. While the design has been based on well-known techniques established earlier by other researchers, the present work has made significant contributions in simplifying the uses of nodal equation formulation method, graph theoretic concepts and topological formulas, as well as applications of a modified least p-th Taylor method, component damping techniques, sensitivity analyses and related design concepts. The basic computer-aided design approachfor a selected network was realized byfirst generating a voltage gain transfer function from the network connectivity details. Information concerning the gradient vector necessary in the course of an optimization process was then derived through a direct method of sensitivity analysis, without performing the normally needed first orderpartial differentiations. Comparison of a transfer function against desired response was preceded by sampling of the latter at selected frequency points and the whole adjustment was eventually automated via the least p-th Taylor method of optimization. It has been established that this approach avoided the time consuming calculation of a Hessian matrix that is usually required for performing network optimization. Convergence properties of the least p-th Taylor method were improved through a use of Fletcher's modification of the classicalLevenberg-Marquardt method together with component damping techniques. The concept of dynamic memory allocation has also been exploited. The resulting computer-aided network design technique was therefore efficient in terms of both processing time and memory requirements and the entire package has been termed as a Pascal program for optimal network design or P-POND. The algorithm has beenfully tested in its usefor designing both passive and active network types by specifying initial network parameters and input-output relations. en_US
