time-varying RLC properties

      Hi,

          I was wondering if it is possbile to model the RLC elements to be time-varying. Previously I have tried to model time-varying permittivity using the material plug-in (), and have fully understood how to update the equation for En. So can we do similiar things for RLC element? .

      I read the article about it (https://optics.ansys.com/hc/en-us/articles/360034915113-Standard-optical-conductivity-material-models-in-FDTD-and-MODE), and found that RLC element is implemented as a distributed surface conductivity

      So I guess if we have a simliar equation that can update surface conductivity in time, then it would be feasible?

      You may try but no guarantee. This topic is not only out of thie forum scope, but also a very advanced feature. The forum is mainly for learning to use software; and the advanced feature has very limited support.

      Sorry about that.

        Hi Dr Sun:
            Thank you very much for your quick response. I know it is a very advanced topic and you also may not have an idea, but I am just curious if I can get help from other channels (for e.g, not in this forum)? Because this would be really important in my research😊.

            Since Lumerical gives users this flexibility to modify the update equations, there maybe some of your technical people have an answer about it? Modifying the equation for surface conductivity should be very simple if this functionality is enabled (like electric fields). I simply wish to know if it is feasible before I started trying on my own. I read all the related articles regarding materal plug-in by Lumerical, but cannot find the solution by myself😢.

            Hope to have your reply!

         

        Thanks

      Does anyone else know the answer?
