Ideal gyrator in electrical systems
Gyrators can be used to implement an inductor with a capacitor. The main benefit is that an equivalent inductance can be created with a much smaller physically sized capacitance. In practice, a gyrator is implemented with an op-amp plus additional passive components.
The Gyrator block models an ideal gyrator with no losses, described with the following equations:
|I1||Current flowing into the input + terminal|
|I2||Current flowing out of the output + terminal|
The two electrical networks connected to the primary and secondary windings must each have their own Electrical Reference block.
