Controlled Pneumatic Pressure Source

Ideal compressor with signal-controlled pressure difference


Pneumatic Sources


The Controlled Pneumatic Pressure Source block represents an ideal compressor that maintains a pressure difference equal to the numerical value presented at physical signal port F. The compressor adds no heat. Block connections A and B correspond to the pneumatic inlet and outlet ports, respectively, and connection F represents a control signal port.

A positive pressure difference results in the pressure at port B being higher than the pressure at port A.

Dialog Box and Parameters

The block has no parameters.


The block has the following ports:


Pneumatic conserving port associated with the source inlet.


Pneumatic conserving port associated with the source outlet.


Control signal port.
