Models for electric circuit components


The electric circuit contains different components that can be:

  • Generic components :
    • Ideal voltage or current sources
    • Passive components (resistors, inductances, capacitors)
    • Semi-conductors (switches, diodes)
    • Specific components for rotating machines (brush-segment, squirrel cage).
  • Specific components representing the conductors in the electric circuit corresponding to regions in the finite elements domain:
    • Solid conductors
    • Coil conductors

This section concerns the components and their modeling (model proposed for the current/voltage characteristic).
