This kind of "thermal oscillating circuit" in effect contains a "thermal inductor." It functions in the same way as an electrical oscillating circuit, in which the voltage oscillates with a constantly changing sign.
As shown in Figure 1, the inductance L in the electromagnetic oscillating circuit is parallel to the capacitance C.
The coil sensor is connected in Colpitts oscillating circuit. The schematic diagram is shown in Figure 3, where L denotes the coil sensor inductance, [DELTA]Z denotes the human body conductivity change, and [R.sub.1], [R.sub.2], [R.sub.3], [C.sub.1], and [C.sub.2] are the circuit parameters.

The wire is electrically modeled as a damped oscillating circuit. In fact, the electrical equivalent circuit consists of two coupled magnetic resonant circuits - this concept is imported from the wireless power transfer theory [17], [20].
For instance, it is easy to note that the differential equation (3c) is analogous to the differential equations describing the swinging of a pendulum or the processes in the radio-technical oscillating circuit. Thus, taking into account that radio engineering has quite a developed theory of analysis and synthesis of linear electric circuits [7], [8], [9], it can be used for the analysis and synthesis of economic systems, using the economic analogs of the electric circuit components, as well as the Ohm's law, the first and the second Kirchhoff's laws, and so on.
In the case of devices with contactless conductivity cells, the electrodes are located on the outer wall of the cell, they were the armatures of a capacitor that is part of an oscillating circuit whose frequency is an expression of the dielectric conductivity (analyzed water).
A series oscillating circuit offers high efficiency and easy load matching.
As the internal CR oscillating circuit and the low-voltage detection circuit are built into the microcontrollers, the need for an external oscillator and reset IC is eliminated, thus contributing to a reduction in overall system costs.
Because the internal CR oscillating circuit (precision level +/-2%) that runs the operating clock and the low-voltage detection circuit that detects a drop in voltage are built into the microcontrollers, the need for an external oscillator and reset IC is eliminated, thus contributing to a reduction in overall system costs.
The eddy current measurement principle is an inductive measuring method based on the extraction of energy from an oscillating circuit. This energy is required for the induction of eddy currents in electrically conductive materials.
For these reasons, hyperabrupt junctions mainly are used as oscillating circuit capacitors.
