Generic Valve $—$ Model for generic valve

The Generic Valve component calculates the pressure loss for a given valve geometry (selected by the user). The calculation depends on the opening of the valve.

Connections

 Name Description Modelica ID ${\mathrm{port}}_{A}$ Layout of port where oil flows into an element ($0<{m}_{\mathrm{flow}}$, ${p}_{B}<{p}_{A}$ means $0<\mathrm{Δp}$) port_A ${\mathrm{port}}_{B}$ Hydraulic port where oil leaves the component (${m}_{\mathrm{flow}}<0$, ${p}_{B}<{p}_{A}$ means $0<\mathrm{Δp}$) port_B $\mathrm{oil}$ oil $\mathrm{opening}$ opening
