In this paper, chaotic circuit of the Lorentz system for engineering applications was implemented using resistor, multipliers, capacitors and operational amplifiers. The implemented Lorentz chaotic system was analysed by PSPICE program. PSPICE simulation results show many kind of chaotic phenomena such time waveforms and phase plots. Meanwhile, according to resistor's variation, we got that Lorentz system show equilibrium state, periodic state and chaotic state.
