In this paper we show how to generate dynamic nonlinear compact thermal models. Algorithms with which network simulators can simulate nonlinear Rth and Cth elements are also given. Various experiments are presented, in which the magnitude of the error caused by neglecting the temperature dependence of the Rth and Cth elements of the dynamic compact thermal models is checked.
