An exact method is given for the temperature determination of devices in circuits analysed by nonlinear-circuit-analysis programs. The method is based on the simultaneous solution of the electronic and thermal network equations by introducing the ‘thermal-node’ temperatures as well as the node voltages. These voltages and temperatures are arranged in a joint state vector.
