Signal Flow Source

Generic flow rate source using the input signal as the source flow rate

Description

The Signal Flow Source component generates a flow rate that is proportional to the input signal. The governing equations are

 $q=\mathrm{inp}\cdot ⟦\frac{{m}^{3}}{s}⟧$ $q\equiv {q}_{u}$ ${q}_{u}+{q}_{d}=0$

Connections

 Name Description Modelica ID $u$ Upstream port portA $d$ Downstream port portB $\mathrm{inp}$ Input signal inp

Variables

 Symbol Units Description $q$ $\frac{{m}^{3}}{s}$ Fluid flow rate through the component ${q}_{x}$ $\frac{{m}^{3}}{s}$ Fluid flow rate into port  $x$, $x\in \left\{u,d\right\}$

Initial Conditions

 Symbol Units Description Modelica ID ${p}_{0}$ $\mathrm{Pa}$ Initial pressure across the component p0 ${q}_{0}$ $\frac{{m}^{3}}{s}$ Initial flow through the component q0
