- Snubber and driver circuits for power electron devices
- Notices about non-idealities and design criteria for passive components:
- capacitors
- magnet cores
- inductors
- transformers
- Physical 2D simulation of power semiconductor devices
- physical simulation of power electron devices
- MIXED-MODE simulation for inductive transients
