The work shows the use the methodology of Bond Graph for modeling electric system of simple RLC circuit. Electrical model is solved by this approach at the level of its physical behavior. In this paper the method of generation of state equations system is discussed. Model of a simple electrical RLC circuit consisting of a resistor, an inductor, and a capacitor is taken. The differential equations describing the dynamics of the system are obtained in terms of the states of the system.
