Mutator-Based Meminductor Emulator for Circuit Applications

A mutator-based meminductor emulator whose inductance can be varied by an external current source is proposed. The implementation of a meminductor emulator is very important, since real meminductors are not physically realizable with current technology. Though there is active research on memristor or memcapacitor emulators, no significant contribution for the meminductor emulator has been presented yet. In this paper, a meminductor emulator has been built using the principle of a mutator, in that a memristor with \(v-i\) at one port functions as a meminductor in the other port, whose input is characterized by \(\varphi - i\) curve. It is shown that multiple meminductor circuits can be built in various configurations with memristors combined with a single mutator. The feasibility of our meminductor emulator and its expandable configurations are verified experimentally and SPICE simulation.
