RC Circuit Model

This tutorial is a simplified version of the RC circuit tutorial in the ModelingToolkit.jl documentation. In that tutorial, the full RC circuit is built from scratch. Here, we will use the components of the Electrical model in the ModelingToolkit Standard Library to simply connect pre-made components and simulate the model.

using ModelingToolkitStandardLibrary.Electrical

R = 1.0
C = 1.0
V = 1.0
@variables t
@named resistor = Resistor(R=R)
@named capacitor = Capacitor(C=C)
@named source = Voltage()
@named constant = Constant(k=V)
@named ground = Ground()

rc_eqs = [
        connect(constant.output, source.V)
        connect(source.p, resistor.p)
        connect(resistor.n, capacitor.p)
        connect(capacitor.n, source.n, ground.g)
        ]

@named rc_model = ODESystem(rc_eqs, t, systems=[resistor, capacitor, constant, source, ground])
sys = structural_simplify(rc_model)

qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Available platform plugins are: linuxfb, minimal, offscreen, vnc, xcb.
