Shuttle Valve  Shuttle valve with internal resistance and volumes at the ports

The Shuttle Valve component describes a shuttle valve. The flow to port T depends on the pressures at ports A and B:

pA  pB

qA from A to T like an orifice (parameters: d, k1, k2) qB from B to T = 0 leakage from A to B (laminar resistance, parameter Gleak)

pA  pB

qB from B to T like an orifice (parameters: d, k1, k2) qA from A to T = 0 leakage from B to A (laminar resistance, parameter Gleak)

pA  pB

Characteristic curve of a valve with underlap; that is, for pA=pB there is flow from A to T and from B to T. The flow area is 25% of the maximum area. This transition is needed to avoid problems with the integration routine.

See Shuttle Valve No States for more information. The mass and flow forces are not included. Use the modifier(s)

VolumeA(port_A(p(start=1e5,fixed=true)))

and/or

VolumeB(port_A(p(start=1e5,fixed=true)))

and/or

VolumeT(port_A(p(start=1e5,fixed=true)))

to set the initial condition(s) for the pressure of the lumped volume(s) Pa.
