Transient Modeling of a Capacitor in a Circuit

Application ID: 12695

A transient model of a capacitor is solved in combination with an external electrical circuit. The finite element model of the capacitor is combined with a circuit model of a voltage source and a resistor. A step change in voltage is applied, and the transient current through the capacitor is computed and compared to the analytic result.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
