Recently, efficient algorithms have been proposed for finding all characteristic curves of one-port piecewise-linear resistive circuits. Using these algorithms, a middle scale one-port circuit can be represented by a piecewise-linear resistor that is neither voltage nor current controlled. In this letter, an efficient algorithm is proposed for finding all dc operating points of piecewise-linear circuits containing such neither voltage nor current controlled resistors.
