Fixed Heat Flow

Fixed heat flow boundary condition

Description

The Fixed Heat Flow component allows a specified amount of heat flow rate to be injected into a thermal system at a given port. Its equation is

Qport=Qflow1αTportTref

The constant amount of heat flow rate Q flowis given as a parameter. The heat flows into the component to which the Fixed Heat Flow component is connected if the parameter Q flow is positive.
