Unknown linear D.C. circuit, measurement-based approach, power level control, multilinear rational function


In this paper we propose an approach to control signals or power levels, in unknown linear D.C. circuits, by adjusting one or more design elements, such as resistors, sources, amplifier gains, at arbitrary locations of the circuit. We show that a few strategic measurements can reveal the functional dependency of any signal or power level on the set of design elements. This approach can be extended to linear A.C. circuits as well as general linear systems.
