Model an engine cooling system with an oil cooling circuit using Simscape™ Fluids™ Thermal Liquid blocks. The system includes a coolant circuit and an oil cooling circuit. A fixed-displacement pump drives coolant through the cooling circuit. The main portion of heat from the engine is absorbed by the coolant and dissipated through the radiator. The system temperature is regulated by the thermostat, which diverts flow to the radiator only when the temperature is above a threshold. The oil cooling circuit also absorbs some of the heat from the engine. The heat added to the oil is transferred to the coolant by the oil-coolant heat exchanger. The Radiator is the E-NTU Heat Exchanger (TL) block with the air-side flow controlled by physical signal inputs. The oil-coolant heat exchanger is the E-NTU Heat Exchanger (TL-TL) block. Both coolant pump and oil pump are driven by the engine speed.
A hydraulic oil system with a thermal control using Simscape™ Fluids™ Thermal Liquid blocks. The hydraulic oil system consists of an oil storage tank represented by the Tank (TL) block with two inlets, a pump represented by a Mass Flow Rate Source (TL) block, and pipelines represented by Pipe (TL) block.
Model a simple house heating system. The model contains a heater, a controller, and a house structure with four radiators and four rooms. Each room exchanges heat with the environment through its exterior walls, roof, and windows. Each path is simulated as a combination of a thermal convection, thermal conduction, and the thermal mass. It is assumed that heat is not transferred internally between rooms. The heater consists of a furnace, a boiler, an accumulator, and a pump to circulate hot water in the system. The controller starts admitting fuel into the furnace if the overall average temperature of rooms falls below 21 degree C and it stops if the temperature exceeds 25 degree C. The simulation calculates the heating cost and indoor temperatures.
The fuel supply system represented in the example consists of three tanks and an engine. The tanks are connected by the fuel lines and the pressure drop in the fuel lines depends on the bank angle of the aircraft or the relative elevation of the ends of the fuel lines. The central tank bottom is elevated by 36 in with respect to the reference plane, which is drawn horizontally through the entry point of the engine. The side tank bottoms are elevated by 4.2 in each at zero bank angle.
This demo shows an Electric Vehicle (EV) battery cooling system. The battery packs are located on top of a cold plate which consists of cooling channels to direct the cooling liquid flow below the battery packs. The heat absorbed by the cooling liquid is transported to the Heating-Cooling Unit. The Heating-Cooling Unit consists of three branches to switch operating modes to cool and heat the battery. The Heater represents an electrical heater for fast heating of the batteries under low temperature conditions. The Radiator uses air-cooling and/or heating when the batteries are operated stably. The Refrigerant system is used for cooling the overheated batteries. The refrigeration cycle is represented by the amount of heat flow extracted from the cooling liquid. The system is simulated under either FTP-75 drive cycle or fast charge scenarios with different environment temperatures.
