Use

Domains: Continuous. Size: 1-D. Kind: Iconic Diagrams (Pseudothermal).

Description

This is a general model for the heat storage that is so large that is can be considered constant (e.g. the environment). It is comparable to the ground in the electrical domain.

 

T0 = 25 {degC};

p.T = T0;

 

Interface

Ports

Description

p[any]

Any number of connections can be made (pseudothermal).

Causality

 

fixed temperature out

An torque out causality results in a derivative constitutive equation.

Parameters

 

T0

temperature [K]
