The main concern of this paper is to investigate some stability properties (namely Aubin property and isolated calmness) of a special non-monotone variational inclusion. We provide a characterization of these properties in terms of the problem data and show their importance for the design of electrical circuits involving nonsmooth and non-monotone electronic devices like DIAC (DIode Alternating Current). Circuits with other devices like SCR (Silicon Controlled Rectifiers), Zener diodes, thyristors, varactors and transistors can be analyzed in the same way.
Keywords: Hemivariational inequalities, nonsmooth and variational analysis, Aubin property, isolated calmness, non-regular electrical circuits.
