Hydraulic pipeline with linear resistance losses
The Linear Hydraulic Resistance block represents a hydraulic resistance where pressure loss is directly proportional to flow rate. This block can be useful at preliminary stages of development, or as a powerful means to speed up the simulation, especially if the flow rate varies insignificantly with respect to the operating point.
Connections A and B are conserving hydraulic ports associated with the block inlet and outlet, respectively.
The block positive direction is from port A to port B. This means that the flow rate is positive if fluid flows from A to B, and the pressure loss is determined as .
The block has the following ports:
