A structure of time minimal strategy of analog circuits optimization
An application of optimal control theory allows to generalize method of analog circuits optimization. A task of search of time minimal strategy of circuits optimization is stated as a classical problem of optimal control theory functional optimization. As an optimized functional there is total processor time. At that, the main tool is controlling function vector, which allows to redistribute processor time burden between circuit analysis task and parametric optimization procedure. Introduced earlier special function, which is normalized Lyapunov’s function of development process, allows to predict total processor time of circuit development using initial development period. This function also allows to find optimal or quasi optimal controlling function vector behavior for minimization of circuit optimization process time.
