Heat Flow Rate Sensor

Ideal heat flow meter


Thermal Sensors


The Heat Flow Rate Sensor block represents an ideal heat flow meter, that is, a device that converts a heat flow passing through the meter into a control signal proportional to this flow. The meter must be connected in series with the component whose heat flow is being monitored.

Connections A and B are thermal conserving ports. Port H is a physical signal port that outputs the heat flow value.

The block positive direction is from port A to port B.


The block has the following ports:


Thermal conserving port associated with the sensor positive probe.


Thermal conserving port associated with the sensor negative probe.


Physical signal output port for heat flow.
