Heat Flow Rate Sensor
Ideal heat flow meter
The Heat Flow Rate Sensor block represents an ideal heat flow meter, that is, a device that converts a heat flow passing through the meter into a control signal proportional to this flow. The meter must be connected in series with the component whose heat flow is being monitored.
Connections A and B are thermal conserving ports. Port H is a physical signal port that outputs the heat flow value.
The block positive direction is from port A to port B.
The block has the following ports:
Thermal conserving port associated with the sensor positive probe.
Thermal conserving port associated with the sensor negative probe.
Physical signal output port for heat flow.
