A design-oriented periodic steady-state analysis is presented in this paper. The new analysis finds the values of circuit parameters that result in a desired circuit performance specified by a set of equality constraints. This is done by including the design equality constraints and the circuit parameters directly in the steady-state analysis as additional equations and unknowns. A time-domain finite difference method and the numerical implementation for the proposed analysis are described. Several examples demonstrate that the new analysis accurately and efficiently tunes circuit parameters that conform to a wide range of design specifications.
