    ODE Solution for an electric circuit ( 5 states=> 2 inductors and 3 capacitors)

    Almonleo Copper


      I was wondering if anybody could help me solve an linear system of equations using ODE.

      I am trying to solve a rather simple electric circuit, but for some reason MathCad is having problems with the solution.

      I was able to solve a similar problem with only 4 states ( that is, without C2 and RC2 components). However, i cannot understand why Odesolve cannot find a solution.

      I simulated the circuit using an electromagnetic trasient analysis software, and the waveforms are very reasonable.


      I was wondering if anybody could have an idea of what I could be doing wrong.


      I have attached the full model with your reference.


      Thank you in advance
