Coolingloop External Temp Control
Dynamic model of a liquid cooling circuit, similar to the CoolingLoop example. The flow is driven by a pump incorporating a table based pump curve. The external heat load is described by a ramp. A radiator with a thermostatic bypass valve cools the liquid coolant. In this example the temperature of a solid object is controlled, and the valve position is controlled by an external PID controller. A fan is incorporated to generate air flow on the heat exchanger.
The plot below shows the temperature set point and the resulting temperature.
