AB - <div class="abstract_block"><p>Transient analysis of RC circuit with voltage step source, constant resistor and nonlinear voltage-dependent capacitors with the capacitance given by <em>C(vc)</em> = Co/√(1+vc/Vbi), where <em>Co</em> and <em>Vbi</em> are constant and <em>vc</em> is the voltage across the capacitor, was carried out. The analysis was restricted to this class of nonlinear capacitors, because they represent with acceptable approximation the capacitances of reverse-biased Schottky diodes, which are very important and usually used in several static power converters practical applications. The charging and discharging are described by explicitly solvable nonlinear first-order differential equations. The theoretical analysis results are verified by numerical examples with computer simulation and also by experimentation in the laboratory.</p></div><div class="abstract_block"> </div>
