Medium models in this package use a constant mass density.
The use of a constant density avoids having pressure as a state variable in mixing volumes. Hence, fast transients introduced by a change in pressure are avoided. The drawback is that the dimensionality of the coupled nonlinear equation system is typically larger for flow networks.
Note that models in this package implement the equation for the internal energy as
u = h - p ⁄ ρstp,
where u is the internal energy per unit mass, h is the enthalpy per unit mass, p is the static pressure and ρstp is the mass density at standard pressure and temperature. The reason for this implementation is that in general,
h = u + p v,
from which follows that
u = h - p v = h - p ⁄ ρ = h - p ⁄ ρstd,
because ρ = ρstd in this medium model.Extends from Modelica.Icons.MaterialPropertiesPackage (Icon for package containing property classes).
