Brief theoretical information
Properties of the nonlinear resistive twoterminal network are determined by its currentvoltage characteristic (CVC). The equivalent circuit of such a twoterminal network to represent a nonlinear resistive element.
A series connection of linear and nonlinear two terminal currentvoltage characteristics of the resulting circuit is usually found by constructing mirroring CVC linear dipole. Mirroring can build on the plane of CVC expression
I=(EU_{n})/R,
where U_{n}  voltage nonlinear element corresponding to each given value of circuit current.
The mode of operation of the circuit will be determined by the point of intersection of the mirroring CVC and CVC nonlinear dipole.
Such constructions are held with graphicanalytical method of solving problems.
The analytical solution of the problem of CVC of the nonlinear element approximatelt one of the known functions and then find the joint solution of the obtained above expressions for mirroring CVC linear element.
At consecutive connection of the nonlinear elements of the graphicanalytical analysis of the operation of the circuit may be done in two ways:
1) by constructing mirroring CVC one of the nonlinear elements and further solving the problem according to the abovedescribed case for problem analysis for series nonlinears elements scheme;
2) the way to build a CVC total obtained by adding the characteristics of both nonlinear elements along the axis of voltage.
To obtain the total CVC of two parallel connected nonlinear elements, the sum of their characteristics should be carried out on the axis of the current. It is also possible to apply the analytical way of solving the problem similar to the above described.
CVC nonlinear elements are usually found experimentally.
