Dynamic Updating of Fluid Flow

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am trying to create a model involving fluid flow and machine setup. So I have one model with flow source, tank and flow sink and another model with source, server and sink with part. I want to dynamically update my fluid flow rate out of the tank whenever any part arrives at the server. For example if the inter arrival rate of part to server is 10 mins and  processing time is 2 mins then I want to start my flow through the tank at 10 mins and my flow should stop after the part leaves the server i.e. 10+2 =12 min. Simply stated I want the flow out of the tank to stop when there is no parts to be processed and start when the part processing start. Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Hello, 

I can't seem to open your model, but here is a simple example to illustrate updating flow when processing starts or ends.  You can change the rate of flow through the flownode by applying similar state assignments using the Output@Tank1.FlowRegulator.CurrentMaximumFlowRate expression.

Hello, 

I can't open your model either. If you can send some screenshots of the properties, that would be great.

Thanks
