This paper proposes simulation methods based on the forward Euler method that are suitable for real-time simulators. However, real-time simulation using the forward Euler method has the following problems: A simulation error caused by a time step limitation and a delay in the simulated waveforms. The authors have proposed a simulation method suitable for real-time simulators, but the physical meaning of the state variables is diluted by diagonalization of the system matrix. This paper proposes a simulation method to obtain the same characteristics as the previous method, without diagonalization. Off-line and real-time simulation results demonstrate the validity and usefulness of the proposed simulation method.
