Defines the name that will be used within COSSAN-X to identify the random variable. It should be selected carefully, changing the name of a Random Variable once other objects have been created may lead to errors. The name of the Random Variable should be compatible with the inputs of a Matlab script (see Mio (editor)) or with the identifiers used with a third party software (see Injector (editor)). The name is a mandatory argument of the Random variable.
