Heat Routing

Basic component of Routing between one object and multiple objects.  Description The Heat Routing component models thermal contact between one object and multiple objects. The route of heat transfer is controlled by the value of the signal input. The following image illustrates the behavior of Heat Routing component using the Thermal Conductor component.  Equations $\mathrm{dT}\left[1\right]=T-\mathrm{T__multi}\left[1\right]$ ... The valid index of the vectorized port is specifed by the input signal $\mathrm{sel}$. Heat resistance $\mathrm{R__on}$ in the valid route is activated. Heat conductance $\mathrm{G__off}$ in the invalid route is activated. Variables

 Symbol Units Description Modelica ID $\mathrm{Q__flow}\left[i\right]$ $W$ Heat flow rate from port to i-th port in multi_port Q_flow[i] $T$ $K$ Temperature of port $K$ Temperature of i-th port in multi_port $\mathrm{dT}\left[i\right]$ $K$ Relative temperature between port and i-th port in multi_port dT[i] Connections

 Name Units Condition Description Modelica ID $\mathrm{port}$ Thermal port, single port $\mathrm{multi_port}$ Thermal port, multiple multi_port $\mathrm{sel}$ Input signal to control the condition of contact sel Parameters

 Symbol Default Units Description Modelica ID $2$  The number of routes. numRoute $\mathrm{R__on}$ $1.0\cdot {10}^{-7}$ $\frac{K}{W}$ Heat resistance when the contact is valid. Ron $\mathrm{G__off}$ $1.0\cdot {10}^{-7}$ $\frac{W}{K}$ Heat conductance when the contact is invalid. Goff See Also
