    You got an answer below, but as an example: you could have drawn the straight parts with circuitikz (very easy), and then posted this to ask how to add rounded wires to it (harder to do).

Maybe this can get you started:



    (0,0) to[R=$r$, *-*] (1.8,0) node[anchor=north] {$a$}
    (0,0) to[R=$r$] (0,2)
    (0,0) to[R=$r$] (-2,0)
    (0,0) to[R=$r$] (0,-2);
    \draw (0,0) circle (2);
    \path (45:2) node[circ] {} node[anchor=south west] {$b$} {};


You can just draw arbitrary paths with the regular \tikz commands, such as the circle. To place contact nodes, you can use a \path and place a \node with option circ on it (or just use \node[circ] (45:2) {};).
