In the early 1960s, Brayton and Moser proved three theorems concerning the stability of nonlinear electrical circuits. The applicability of each theorem depends on three different conditions on the type of admissible nonlinearities in circuit. Roughly speaking, this means that the theorems apply to either circuits that contain purely linear resistors or conductors-combined with linear or nonlinear inductors and capacitors or to circuits that contain purely linear inductors and capacitors-combined with linear or nonlinear resistors and conductors. This brief note presents a generalization of Brayton and Moser's stability theorems that also includes the analysis of circuits that contain nonlinear resistors, conductors, inductors, and/or capacitors at the same time.
