I have a simple RC first order circuit. I am using the poperator and MNA methods to derive a first order differential equation so I can plug the Eigenvalue coefficients into the solution (y(t)=(VfVo)*e^t/tau +Vf) and have an equation for the transient response as shown on pages 35. This works for when the capacitor is charging without the diode, but not so much when it's discharging as shown on page 7.
Does anyone know how to setup this problem in the Hp prime calculator to solve for the capacitor's final voltage and the time constant similar to how I did it when the capacitor was charging? Can we use the poperator method with nonlinear diodes?
Thank you for any help regarding this topic!
