Ultracapacitor Energy Storage with Custom Component

This example shows how to use the Simscape™ example library Capacitors_lib. The model is constructed using components from the example library. The circuit charges an ultracapacitor from a constant 0.05 amp current source, and then delivers a pulse of current to a load. The ultracapacitor enables a much higher current to be delivered than is possible directly from the current source. The library contains capacitor models with different levels of fidelity to allow exploration of the effect of losses and nonlinearity.
