A MLMVN with Arbitrary Complex-Valued Inputs and a Hybrid Testability Approach for the Extraction of Lumped Models Using FRA


A procedure for the identification of lumped models of distributed parameter electromagnetic systems is presented in this paper. A Frequency Response Analysis (FRA) of the device to be modeled is performed, executing repeated measurements or intensive simulations. The method can be used to extract the values of the components. The fundamental brick of this architecture is a multi-valued neuron (MVN), used in a multilayer neural network (MLMVN); the neuron is modified in order to use arbitrary complex-valued inputs, which represent the frequency response of the device. It is shown that this modification requires just a slight change in the MLMVN learning algorithm. The method is tested over three completely different examples to clearly explain its generality.
