This will reduce the time of computer simulation of electrical processes in linear electrical circuits. An example of using the proposed method is shown. Based on the developed method, a computer program for calculating the steady-state process in the model circuit is worked out. This example shows a 45% reduction in CPU time compared to the use of known methods.</p><p class="a"><strong>Originality</strong><strong>. </strong> Processes in electrical circuits are described by integro-differential equations. The approximation of functions of current derivatives to time by series on orthogonal Tchebyshev’s polynomials is used in their solution.When approximating functions, Chebyshev polynomials have uniform error in the whole range of argument change. It is advantageous stand out them from a number of other orthogonal functions. The proposed method uses a polynomial approximation not of the solution function itself, but of its derivative. The function itself is obtained with the help of integration operation. This operation has a small margin of error compared to the differentiation operation. The direct calculation of the steady-state periodic process is achieved by taking the initial conditions for currents and their derivatives at the beginning of the period as the values of the same functions at the end of the period. In the proposed method, integro-differential equations of state are transformed into linear algebraic equations. A method for creating a unified system of linear algebraic equations is proposed. The solution of this system allows you to perform directly the calculation of steady-state periodic processes.</p><p class="a"><strong>Practical value</strong> The developed method opens a new possibility of using a diverse apparatus of the electric circuits theory to work with images of currents. Based on this method, a universal software package is developed for calculating steady-state periodic processes in electrical circuits of arbitrary complexity. This will reduce the CPU time for modeling complex circuits.</p>}, number={2}, journal={Electrical Engineering and Power Engineering}, author={Patalakh, D. and Tykhovod, S.}, year={2020}, month={Dec.}, pages={24–31} }
