A set-up is introduced which can be superimposed onto the existing
solar flare cellular automata (CA) models, and which specifies the
interpretation of the model's variables. It extends the CA models,
yielding the magnetic field, the current, and an approximation to the
electric field, in a way that is consistent with Maxwell's and the MHD
equations. Applications to several solar flare CA models during their
natural state (self-organized criticality (SOC)) show, among others,
that (1) the magnetic field exhibits
