A new computer-oriented method for a large-signal time-domain analysis of networks containing ideal switches is presented. The method is based on a state variable approach that exploits an efficient novel algorithm developed for the systematic formulation of state equations and output equations for linear active networks, Switched networks consisting of linear elements and both externally and internally controlled switches can be investigated, Dirac's delta impulses are permitted in the analysis in order to find out the correct topology after switching, A new simple and convenient method for representing Dirac's delta impulses is also introduced, An example is both discussed in detail and analyzed with a computer code.
