A Nonlinear Least Squares Fit (NLLSF) program is described, with which frequency dispersion data of electrochemical systems can be analyzed in terms of an equivalent circuit. The NLLSF procedure uses a combination of an analytical and gradient search according to the Marquardt algorithm. Through the use of an unique Circuit Description Code (CDC) different equivalent circuits may be used with the program. The use of an analytical derivatives routine enhances the execution speed. The power of such a fit procedure is demonstrated in multi parameter fits, on synthetic and real data, performed by the program “EQIVCT”.
