The Power Circuit Simulator
Description
A simulator of a voltage conversion power circuit. The target output voltage of the power circuit is 220 volts DC. The circuit consists of 10 resistances labeled A to J, and 3 transistors, labeled K to M. These components can be purchased with different tolerance grades.

Details
Factors affect the voltage output V via a chain of nonlinear equations:
volts=(136.67(a+(b/Z(10)))+d(c+e)(g/f)h)/(1+d(e/f)+b[(1/Z(10))+0.006(1+(13.67/Z(10)))]+0.08202a)
where
a=Z(2)/(Z(1)+Z(2))
b=(1/(Z(12)+Z(13)))(Z(3)+(Z(1)Z(2)/(Z(1)+Z(2))))+Z(9)
c=Z(5)+Z(7)/2
d=Z(11)(Z(1)Z(2))/(Z(1)+Z(2))
e=Z(6)+Z(7)/2
f=(c+e)(1+Z(11))Z(8)+ce
g=0.6+Z(8)
h=1.2
with Z(1),…,Z(10) resistances in Ω of the 10 resistances and Z(11),Z(12),Z(13) are the h_{FE} values of three transistors.
