This article introduces broadband equivalent circuit models for both series-connected and parallel-connected canonical chiral elements. Each connection method results in a different terminal impedance behavior and therefore requires a different equivalent circuit model. These equivalent circuit models have a variety of applications including allowing for convenient analysis of chiral antennas as well as meta-materials composed of passively or actively loaded chiral elements.
