Heat Flow Sensor

Heat flow rate sensor

Description

The Heat Flow Sensor component monitors the heat flow rate flowing through it.  This component assumes an ideal situation; no energy is lost between the ports. The output signal is positive if the heat flows from input port a to port b. The equations of this component are

Tport.a=Tport.b

Qflow.a+Qflow.b=0

Qflow=Qflow.a
