Gyrator-capacitor model

The gyrator-capacitor model [1] is a lumped-element model for magnetic fields, similar to magnetic circuits, but based on using elements analogous to capacitors (see magnetic capacitance) rather than elements analogous to resistors (see magnetic reluctance) to represent the magnetic flux path. Windings are represented as gyrators, interfacing between the electrical circuit and the magnetic model. The primary advantage of the gyrator-capacitor model compared to magnetic circuits is that the concepts of energy storage and energy dissipation from electrical circuits apply directly.
