Description

The Mass & Energy Flow Rate Sensor (TL) block represents an ideal sensor that measures mass and energy flow rates through a thermal liquid node.

Because the flow rates are Through variables, the block must connect in series with the component being measured.

The relative orientation of ports A and B establishes the measurement sign. The sign is positive if flow occurs from port A to port B. Switching port connections reverses the measurement sign.

Two physical signal ports output the measurement data. Port M outputs the mass flow rate. Port Phi outputs the energy flow rate. Connect the ports to PS-Simulink Converter blocks to transform the output physical signals into Simulink® signals, for example, for plotting or additional data processing.
