ANALYSIS OF AN ANTI-PARALLEL MEMRISTOR CIRCUIT


Abstract

The basic purpose of the present paper is to propose an extended investigation and computer analysis of an anti-parallel memristor circuit with two equivalent memristor elements with different initial values of the state variables using a modified Boundary Condition Memristor (BCM) Model and the finite differences method. The memristor circuit is investigated for sinusoidal supply current at different magnitudes – for soft-switching and hard-switching modes, respectively. The influence of the initial values of the state variables on the circuit’s behaviour is presented as well. The equivalent i-v and memristance-flux and the other important relationshipsof the memristor circuit are also analyzed.
