This paper presents an efficient technique for transient simulation of linear subnetworks characterized by S-parameters in the presence of nonlinear components. The proposed method is based on the recently developed model-reduction technique, complex frequency hopping. A new algorithm for computing the moments of 5-parameter-based subnetworks is presented. The proposed method is suitable for simulating large number of 5-parameter-based subnetworks in a general circuit environment consisting of lumped/distributed elements and nonlinear devices.
