Chaotic Electric Circuit Explorer
written by Greg Marcil
The Chaotic Electric Circuit Explorer Model simulation enables the user to explore the properties and behavior of two electrical circuits with known chaotic behavior. The two circuits are Chua's circuit and an autonomous relaxation oscillator (ARO). The simulation has four modes. The user may run a circuit with either preset or user-selected initial conditions to observe the time-dependence of voltage across specific capacitors and a plot of the phase space of these capacitors' voltages against one another.
The Chaotic Electric Circuit Explorer Model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_comp_phys_circuit_chaos.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.
Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
