Pressure Network Example

  • An arc fault occurs in the func­tion­al unit of assem­bly. The unit dis­charges via a pres­sure relief open­ing into a sta­tion build­ing, that dis­charges into the envi­ron­ment via its own pres­sure relief opening.

  • In the pres­sure net­work, the elec­tri­cal input vari­ables (Fig. 2, Fig. 3) and the geo­met­ric bound­ary con­di­tions are sim­u­lat­ed using pow­er, vol­ume and pres­sure relief ele­ments. Run­time effects and reflec­tions are tak­en into account.

  • The cal­cu­la­tion of the pres­sures (Fig. 4, 5) is dynam­ic and depen­dent on time.
