Hydraulic Constant Flow Rate Source

Ideal source of hydraulic energy, characterized by constant flow rate

Library

Hydraulic Sources

Description

The Hydraulic Constant Flow Rate Source block represents an ideal source of hydraulic energy that is powerful enough to maintain specified flow rate at its outlet regardless of the pressure differential across the source. The Source flow rate parameter specifies the flow rate through the source.

Block connections T and P correspond to the hydraulic inlet and outlet ports, respectively. The block positive direction is from port T to port P.

Dialog Box and Parameters

Source flow rate

Specifies the flow rate through the source. The default value is 0.001 m^3/s.

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.
