Abstract:

Whenever active or passive devices are included in an electronic circuit that is to be analyzed by a computer, appropriate models for these devices must be developed. The majority of the models that have been adapted for analyzing a circuit on a computer have neglected the effect of ambient temperature on the element. Temperature variation has been shown to have hazardous effects on electronic components. The paper deals with the modification of some existing models to include temperature effects and shows the results of such modifications. It is done for six basic electronic components i.e., resistor, capacitor, inductor, diode, bipolar transistor and field-effect transistor. Suggestions for extension of this work are also included.
