Vector bond graph notation and conventions are presented which simplify the task of representing the multiple power bonds, transformations and junction structures of multiport systems. These ideas are shown to be particularly convenient in the reticulation of represntative microelements for a class of one-dimensional multipower distributed systems. The microelements are an aid in understanding the dynamics of distributed systems and may be used to construct approximate lumped models.
