Hydraulic Constant Mass Flow Rate Source

Ideal source of mechanical energy in hydraulic network, characterized by constant mass flow rate

Hydraulic Sources

Description

The Hydraulic Constant Mass Flow Rate Source block represents an ideal mechanical energy source in a hydraulic network that can maintain a constant mass flow rate regardless of the pressure differential across the source. The source does not generate any losses due to friction. The Mass flow rate parameter specifies the mass flow rate through the source.

Block connections T and P correspond to the hydraulic inlet and outlet ports, respectively. A positive mass flow rate causes liquid to flow from port T to port P.

Parameters

Mass flow rate

Specifies the mass flow rate through the source. The default value is 0.001 kg/s.

Ports

The block has the following ports:

T

Hydraulic conserving port associated with the source inlet.

P

Hydraulic conserving port associated with the source outlet.

Introduced in R2016b
