Ideal source of mechanical energy in hydraulic network, characterized by mass flow rate
The Hydraulic Mass Flow Rate Source block represents an ideal mechanical energy source in a hydraulic network that can maintain a specified mass flow rate regardless of the pressure differential across the source. The source does not generate any losses due to friction. Block connections T and P correspond to the hydraulic inlet and outlet ports, respectively. The mass flow rate through the source is directly proportional to the signal at the control port M.
A positive mass flow rate causes liquid to flow from port T to port P.
The block has the following ports:
Hydraulic conserving port associated with the source inlet.
Hydraulic conserving port associated with the source outlet.
Control signal port.
