Analysis of the control vector structure in analog networks design
The methodology of analog networks design developed on the basis of the optimum control theory is used for determining the vector structure controlling the optimization process. The analysis of control vector structure is performed by using the Lyapunov function concept of design process. The investigation of behavior of this function and its time derivative makes it possible to determine optimal switching points of the control vector. Such an approach allows us to minimize the total processor time of network design by correcting the control vector structure in terms of the characteristics of the initial period of design. Numerical results of the optimization process of networks with arbitrary number of transistors indicate the possibility of design process control for minimization of the total processor time.
