Description

This model represents a tiny volume (default: 1 ml) if the causality of the port is pressure out, and a zero flow, if the causality is flow out. A parasitic volume is a tiny volume that can be added to elements to make them more easy to simulate. Some elements require a pressure as input variable. Coupling two such elements leads to a mathematical problem: both yield a volume flow as function of the input pressure. Adding a parasitic volume in between will solve the mathematical problem (the parasitic volume calculates the pressure) without changing the dynamics much (the volume is small).

 

The parasitic element has a likes causality. If two parasitic volumes are coupled, one of them will get a pressure out causality (representing a tiny volume) and the other will get a flow out casuality (representing a zero flow). I.e only one of them is a volume and the other becomes ineffective.
