Interface (H-IL)

Flow connection between hydraulic and isothermal liquid networks

  • Library:
  • Simscape / Foundation Library / Hydraulic / Hydraulic Utilities

  • Interface (H-IL) block

Description

The Interface (H-IL) block represents a cross-domain flow connection between hydraulic and isothermal liquid networks:

  • Pressure and mass flow rates are equal at the interface.

  • Fluid properties are not shared across the interface. Each network has its own fluid properties.

Use this block in existing models with blocks from the Foundation > Hydraulic library, or from the Fluids > Hydraulics (Isothermal) library, to implement parts of the model using Isothermal Liquid library blocks, without converting the whole model. The Fluids > Hydraulics (Isothermal) library is available if you have a Simscape™ Fluids™ license.

The hydraulicToIsothermalLiquid conversion tool replaces Hydraulic blocks in your model with equivalent Isothermal Liquid blocks. If your model contains references or links to other libraries, models, or subsystems, you can use the Interface (H-IL) to restore the broken connections between the converted parts of the block diagram and the libraries, models, or subsystems that still need to be converted.
