Some design trajectories were analyzed using a generalized design methodology. The starting point of the design process was changed to obtain different trajectories and compare them by processor time. Study of the phase portrait, consisting of a family of trajectories, allows us to analyze the acceleration effect. A special line, called a separatrix, divides а set of trajectories into two parts: with and without possible acceleration. The numerical results of the design of passive and active electronic circuits prove that the optimal choice of the starting point of the design algorithm allows you to minimize the time of the design process.
Keywords: Control theory application, optimal start point selection, time-optimal design algorithm.

Varias trayectorias de diseño se analizaron utilizando una metodología de diseño generalizada. El punto de partida del proceso de diseño se cambió para obtener diferentes trayectorias y compararlas por tiempo de procesador. El estudio del retrato de fase, que consiste en una familia de trayectorias, nos permite analizar el efecto de aceleración. Una línea especial, llamada separatrix, divide un conjunto de trayectorias en dos partes: con y sin aceleración posible. Los resultados numéricos del diseño de circuitos electrónicos pasivos y activos demuestran que la elección óptima del punto de partida del algoritmo de diseño le permite minimizar el tiempo del proceso de diseño.
Palabras clave: Aplicación de la teoría de control, algoritmo de diseño de tiempo óptimo, selección óptima del punto de inicio.
