Ideal mechanical rotational inertia
Mechanical Rotational Elements
The Inertia block represents an ideal mechanical rotational inertia, described with the following equation:
The block has one mechanical rotational conserving port. The block positive direction is from its port to the reference point. This means that the inertia torque is positive if inertia is accelerated in positive direction.
To set the priority and initial target values for the block variables prior to simulation, use the Variables tab in the block dialog box (or the Variables section in the block Property Inspector). For more information, see Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables.
Inertia. The default value is
The block has one mechanical rotational conserving port, associated with the inertia connection to the system.
