Ideal source of thermal energy, characterized by temperature
The Ideal Temperature Source block represents an ideal source of thermal energy that is powerful enough to maintain specified temperature at its outlet regardless of the heat flow consumed by the system.
Connections A and B are thermal conserving ports corresponding to the source inlet and outlet, respectively. Port S is a physical signal port, through which the control signal that drives the source is applied. You can use the entire variety of Simulink® signal sources to generate the desired heat flow variation profile. The temperature differential across the source is directly proportional to the signal at the control port S.
The block positive direction is from port A to port B. This means that the temperature differential is determined as TB – TA, where TB and TA are the temperatures at source ports.
The block has the following ports:
Thermal conserving port associated with the source inlet.
Thermal conserving port associated with the source outlet.
Physical signal input port, through which the control signal that drives the source is applied.
