Description

The Volumetric Flow Rate Sensor (MA) block represents an ideal sensor that measures volumetric flow rate in a moist air network. There is no change in pressure, temperature, specific humidity, or trace gas mass fraction across the sensor.

Because the flow rate is a Through variable, 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.

Physical signal port V outputs the volumetric flow rate through the sensor. Connect this port to a PS-Simulink Converter block to transform the output physical signal into a Simulink® signal, for example, for plotting or additional data processing.
