Ideal sensor for measuring the relative pressure and temperature between two points
The Pressure & Temperature Sensor (TL) block represents an ideal sensor that measures pressure and temperature differences between two thermal liquid nodes. Because pressure and temperature are Across variables, the sensor block must connect in parallel with the component being measured.
The relative orientation of ports A and B determines the measurement sign. The sign is positive if the measured quantity is greater at port B than it is at port A. Switching port connections reverses the measurement sign.
Ports P and T output the pressure and temperature measurements as physical signals. Connect the ports to PS-Simulink Converter blocks to transform the output physical signals into Simulink® signals, e.g., for plotting or additional data processing.
The block has the following ports.
|A, B||Thermal liquid conserving ports|
|P||Physical signal output port for pressure measurement|
|T||Physical signal output port for temperature measurement|
