Multi Capacitor

Multiple lumped thermal element storing heat

 Description The Multi Capacitor component models a generic ideal multiple heat capacity. The total number of parallel capacitors is determined by the Nodes parameter. The following example uses Heat Capacitor components to illustrate the behavior of Multi Capacitor component.
