This file contains a model of a simple fuel system modeled using Simscape and Simscape Fluids. Pumps and valves control the flow between fuel tanks. The pressure drop along the fuel lines is dependent upon the elevation at the ends of the line. The model includes a set of test scenarios that include varying environmental conditions and failure events for components in the system. A MATLAB script automates the execution of these tests, and produces a plot to show how the system performed in each test.
Please read the README.txt file to get started.
