Volume Flow Sensor

Measure volume flow rate

Description

The Volume Flow Sensor component is a two-port thermal-fluid component that generates a real signal proportional to the volume flow rate from ${\mathrm{flowPort}}_{a}$ to ${\mathrm{flowPort}}_{b}$.

Its equations are

 ${Q}_{\mathrm{flow}}=0$ $\mathrm{Δp}=0$

Connections

 Name Description ${\mathrm{flowPort}}_{}$ Thermal-fluid flow port $y$ Real signal output (in $\frac{{m}^{3}}{s}$)

Variables

 Symbol Units Description Modelica ID $\mathrm{Δp}$ $\mathrm{Pa}$ Pressure drop from $a$ to $b$ dp ${Q}_{\mathrm{flow}}$ $W$ Heat exchange with ambient Q_flow ${V}_{\mathrm{flow}}$ $\frac{{m}^{3}}{s}$ Volume flow from $a$ to $b$ V_flow

Parameters
