Thermodynamic Properties Sensor (TL)

Measure specific internal energy, density, and specific heat at constant pressure

  • Library:
  • Foundation Library / Thermal Liquid / Sensors

Description

The Thermodynamic Properties Sensor (TL) block represents an ideal sensor that measures specific internal energy, density, and specific heat at constant pressure in a thermal liquid network. There is no mass or energy flow through the sensor.

The block measures these thermodynamic properties at the node connected to port A. All measurements are taken with respect to absolute zero.

Ports

Output

expand all

Physical signal output port for measuring the specific internal energy of thermal liquid.

Physical signal output port for measuring the density of thermal liquid.

Physical signal output port for measuring the thermal liquid specific heat at constant pressure.

Conserving
