Abstract: Dirac dynamical systems are the natural generalization of Gotay-Nester systems where the presymplectic form is replaced by a Dirac structure. The case of an integrable Dirac structure gives an extension of the Dirac theory of constraints which includes integrable nonholonomic systems. The study of LC circuits can be approached with these methods and the evolution equation can be written in Poisson form, using an adapted Dirac bracket.
