Description

The Volume Flow component is a two-port thermal-fluid component that establishes a set volume flow.  The temperature and enthalpy of the medium are not changed. When the useVolumeFlowInput boolean parameter is false, the volume flow is set by the component parameter Vflow, otherwise the flow is set by a signal input.
