We are the first to develop SPICE compatible circuit model for reluctance K. It can be combined with any reluctance based extraction method to perform RLC simulation directly without the need of inverting reluctance matrix back into inductance domain or modifying conventional simulator. To build symmetrical reluctance matrix, we also proposed blocked K method based on group concept to cover more magnetic couplings. Both detail analysis and experiments demonstrated that the combination of the SPICE compatible circuit model and the blocked K method has the best compromise between accuracy and performance among all SPICE compatible sparsification techniques.
