As I approached my senior year for my B.S. in Electrical Engineering, I wanted to create
something that most people hadn't created before, a circuit simulator! It was about the
experience, the learning, and the the journey itself. I put together this application to
package my knowledge in Electrical Engineering to some day help another student have
an easier time in their scholastic pursuits and in turn teach them about circuits.
Circuit Solver is far from perfect and there are lots of things that could be optimized.
It will however, simulate a majority of linear Circuits and a decent amount of smaller
scale Non-Linear Circuits. If you want to support the application consider
purchasing the ad free version for 1.00 [USD] at and if you cant i'd appreciate
you spreading the word to help support my efforts and or rating the app however you feel,
Thanks! Irregardless of what you choose thank you for using Circuit Solver!

Think of Circuit Solver as an electronic circuit board, you drag your electrical components
and place them on one at a time. You hook up some sources and you place some meters
to read the values. If you need to analyze the waveform, grab some electrical leads and
view them with an oscilloscope. There are many SPICE tools out there for PC such as
Multisim, LTSpice, OrCAD, and PSpice. Circuit Solver doesn't compare to their raw power
but it is optimized to run on mobile devices which makes it both portable and easily
accessible to anyone in need of circuit solutions. Circuit Solver strives to verify Ohm's law,
Kirchhoff's current and voltage laws by creating models that are both stable and efficient.
Make circuit solver your first step in circuit design!

DC Simulation:
To simulate the circuits, a matrix is defined based on all the components inside the circuit.
The application solves the circuit using matrix manipulations such as LU-Decomposition
and matrix inversion. DC Analysis is completed by writing a series of nodal equations.
The equations are solved simultaneously to obtain a unique solution.

Transient Simulation:
In transient simulation we use numerical integration to determine the response of RLC
circuits. Numerical integration allows for one to solve for discrete moments of time and
in effect integrate their response. This application only supports the Trapezoidal method.

Non Linear Simulation:
Non linear simulation is used for components such as diodes, LEDs, and transistors.
The solver first guesses the approximate value of the solution and is refined through the
use of a Newton-Raphson process. It utilizes linear approximation to predict the answer
through successive iterations.

Visualize waveforms through the use of the built in oscilloscope. To use this feature
simply link either a volt meter or an amp meter to the graph by tapping on them and
pressing the eye, in order to view the wave.

Saving Schematics/Circuits:
Save your circuits on your device to use anywhere you go and at any time. You may
also capture screen shots of the circuits you build. These screen shots are saved
locally on your device.
