R, L, C components: about

R, L, C components

The passive components: resistor (R), inductance (L) and capacitor (C) can be created:

  • within the electric circuit editor context (graphically visualized components)
  • by circuit export (graphically visualized components depending on the format)
  • directly in Flux (component graphically non visualized)

Graphic representation

In the circuit editor, the components are represented by the following graphic symbols:

Resistor Inductor Capacitor


The orientation of these components does not affect the finite elements method computation.

Electrical model

There is a model for the current-voltage characteristic proposed for each passive components: resistor, inductor, capacitor.
