I'd like to draw your intention to the Mathematica add-on package Analog
Insydes which stands for Intelligent Symbolic Design System for analog
electronic circuits. The toolbox includes a numerical DAE solver called
NDAESolve which should solve your described problem. Although it is intended
to solve DAE systems it can also be applied to systems of algebraic
equations. You can download a free evaluation version of Analog Insydes
(Windows95/NT, Solaris2) from:
