The **lumped element model** (also called **lumped parameter model**, or **lumped component model**) simplifies the description of the behaviour of spatially distributed physical systems into a topology consisting of discrete entities that approximate the behaviour of the distributed system under certain assumptions. It is useful in electrical systems (including electronics), mechanical multibody systems, heat transfer, acoustics, etc.

Mathematically speaking, the simplification reduces the state space of the system to a finite number, and the partial differential equations (PDEs) of the continuous (infinite-dimensional) time and space model of the physical system into ordinary differential equations (ODEs) with a finite number of parameters.

### Famous quotes containing the words model and/or element:

“I had a wonderful job. I worked for a big *model* agency in Manhattan.... When I got on the subway to go to work, it was like traveling into another world. Oh, the shops were beautiful, we had Bergdorf’s, Bendel’s, Bonwit’s, DePinna. The women wore hats and gloves. Another world. At home, it was cooking, cleaning, taking care of the kids, going to PTA, Girl Scouts. But when I got into the office, everything was different, I was different.”

—Estelle Shuster (b. c. 1923)

“Truly, though our *element* is time,

We are not suited to the long perspectives

Open at each instant of our lives.”

—Philip Larkin (1922–1986)
