Abstract: Power grid voltage integrity verification requires checking if all the voltage drops on the grid are less than a certain threshold that guarantees proper circuit operation. This thesis addresses the problem of correcting the grid when some voltage drops exceed this threshold by making minor modifications to the existing design. The method uses current constraints that capture the uncertainty about the underlying circuit behavior to find the maximum voltage drop on the grid, and then to estimate the voltage drop as a function of the metal widths on the grid. It formulates a nonlinear optimization problem and finds the required change in widths that reduces the maximum voltage drop on the grid below the threshold while keeping the total area cost at a minimum.
