Issue Details

I want to simulate a temperature change in the following circuit:
 

In Analyses and Simulations, I have found that there is a Temperature Sweep section but also a Parameter Sweep that allows to change the temp parameter. What is the difference between these Simulations?

Solution

The Temperature Sweep is found in the toolbar Simulate>>Analyses and Simulation>>Temperature Sweep, as is seen in the following image:
 

This Temperature Sweep allows you to verify the operation of the circuit at different temperatures. 

In the other hand, with a Parameter Sweep you can verify the operation of a circuit by simulation across a range of values for a component parameter, once for each value. Therefore, this simulates the circuit several times with different values for the temp parameter of the resistor.
 

This type of simulation can be found in Simulate>>Analyses and Simulation>>Parameter Sweep
