the system of equations you want to solve is a DAE (differential-algebraic
equation) rather than a system of ODE's. Unfortunately, NDSolve cannot
handle this type of equations. However, our circuit analysis toolbox Analog
Insydes includes a numerical DAE solver (NDAESolve) that may help you to
solve your problem. You can download a fully functional demo version from
our web site (see my signature). In addition, if you send me your equations,
I can show you how to use NDAESolve.
