To determine if the system conserves energy, the
isEnrgyBalanced method checks the energy conservation at each time step.
Blocks change the input energy plus released stored energy to output energy plus stored energy. For example, a mapped engine block uses fuel (not transferred energy) to produce torque (transferred energy) and heat loss (not transferred energy). The total modified energy represents the average between the input fuel energy and the energy exiting the system (torque and heat loss). To calculate the total energy modified by the block, the method uses the integral of the average transferred, not transferred, and stored power.
If the energy conservation error is within an error tolerance, the method returns true. Specifically, if either condition is met, the method returns true.
The equations use these variables.
