I have a question about output capacitor filters.
So I know that a simple capacitor filter would have a single pole response, and this is just a first order filter. Let's say that the value of the capacitor here is C.
If I had split this single capacitor into 5 smaller ones, i.e. each capacitor has a value of C/5, would my filter now be 5th order? Would I also have 5 ESR zeros because of this configuration?
EDIT: here is an explaination of what I'm thinking
Given that the single pole RC filter looks like this:
Would splitting that capacitor into 5 capacitors not increase the number of poles and zeroes in my system? assuming that the resistance in the wires is even 1 Ohm, would that not make multiple RC filters, and thus, increasing the dB/decades of my filter?
