6.2.3 Global Damping Strategy

As for the device equations global damping strategies have been used for circuit equations. E.g., for JANAP [6] the damping scheme after Bank and Rose has been used. In numerical experiments it was tried to use global damping schemes for the fully coupled mixed-mode equation system. As the non-linearities are so strong, the damping for the node voltages was found to be so restrictive that they were only updated with a few milli-Volt or less.
