To explore the applications of the memcapacitor in the conservative circuits, the nonlinear dynamics of a memcapacitor-based hyperchaotic conservative circuit are studied in detail. Specifically, the conservative condition of the system is obtained by combining divergence and Hamiltonian energy, and the perpetual points and equilibrium points of the memcapacitor-based system are also analyzed in detail. Subsequently, the influences of system parameters and initial conditions on the dynamics of the memcapacitor-based hyperchaotic conservative system are discussed through the dynamic map and the basin of attraction, where three dynamics phenomena can be observed, such as interior crisis, largest Lyapunov exponent jump, and coexisting conservative flows. Finally, the theoretical results are verified by the circuit experiment simulation through MULTISIM and digital signal processing; a pseudorandom number generator based on the hyperchaotic conservative system is also designed and compared with another system through an NIST test.
