  • Library:
  • Simscape / Foundation Library / Thermal / Thermal Sources

Description

The Heat Flow Rate Source block represents an ideal source of thermal energy that is powerful enough to maintain specified heat flow at its outlet regardless of the temperature difference across the source.

The source generates constant heat flow rate, defined by the Heat flow rate parameter value.
