  • Hydraulic Mass Flow Rate Source block

Description

The Hydraulic Mass Flow Rate Source block represents an ideal mechanical energy source in a hydraulic network that can maintain a specified mass flow rate regardless of the pressure differential across the source. The source does not generate any losses due to friction. Block connections T and P correspond to the hydraulic inlet and outlet ports, respectively. The mass flow rate through the source is directly proportional to the signal at the control port M.

A positive mass flow rate causes liquid to flow from port T to port P.

Ports

The block has the following ports:

T

Hydraulic conserving port associated with the source inlet.

P

Hydraulic conserving port associated with the source outlet.

M

Control signal port.
