Domains: Continuous. Size: 1-D. Kind: Block Diagrams, Bond Graphs.

Description

This model represents a power continuous storage element. The element has a preferred effort out causality. The corresponding constitutive equations then contain an integration. The element can also have the non-preferred flow out causality. The constitutive equations then contain a derivation.

 

effort out causality (preferred):

 

state = int(p.f) + state(0);

p.e = state/c;

output = state;

 

flow out causality:

 

state = c*p.e;

p.f = d state / dt;

output = state;

Interface

Ports

Description

p

Input port of the storage element.

Causality

 

preferred effort out

A flow out causality results in a derivative constitutive equation.

Outputs

 

output

The output signal is equal to the state.

Parameters

 

c

The storage element constant.

Initial Values

 

state(0)

The initial value of the storage element.
