User models based on Liquid Cooling Library 1.4 does not need any conversions.
Liquid Cooling Library 1.4.1 is based on the Modelon Base Library 2.3 and Modelica Standard Library 3.2.1. It has been tested with:
Conversion of user libraries
Automatic conversion from Liquid Cooling Library 1.3 is supported using the supplied conversion script.
Liquid Cooling Library 1.4 is based on the Modelon Base Library 2.2 and Modelica Standard Library 3.2.1.
Conversion of user libraries
Automatic conversion of user libraries is supported using the included conversion script.
Liquid Cooling Library 1.3 is based on the Modelon Base Library 2.1 and Modelica Standard Library 3.2.1.
Available for: Dymola 2014 FD01
Dependencies: Modelica Standard Library Version: 3.2.1 and Modelon Base Library 1.9
Conversion script from 1.0 and 1.1 provided
Version 1.2 of the Liquid Cooling Library is a major update with several new features, bug fixes and other improvements.
The following medium models have been added to the Liquid Cooling Library:
Liquid Cooling Library 1.2 has been updated for MSL 3.2.1
Version 1.1 of the Liquid Cooling Library is a major update with several new features, bug fixes and other improvements.
Several new internal flow components have been added with geometry based flow resistance models. The loss coefficient data source is D S Miller: Internal Flow Systems, 1990. The added new components are:
Other new components that have been added include:
Medium property models
Medium property models for several liquid phase coolants and refrigerants have been added. The concentration can be set to any value between zero and the eutectic point for the given mixture and is valid between the freezing point and boiling point of the fluid. The data reference is Åke Melinder: Properties of Secondary Working Fluids for Indirect Systems, 2010. (Vapor pressure is currently only available for pure water). The added fluids are aqueous solutions of:
With the inclusion of these medium models, the table based water - glycol mixtures at fixed concentrations have been removed. Users are encouraged to use the new medium models as they are based on more reliable data, but the source data of the previous models is still available in the library.
Heat exchanger stacks
Models of simple automotive heat exchanger stack have been added. These are based on the included heat exchanger models and distribute air over the heat exchanger faces based on the covered area fractions which are calculated from the heat exchanger sizes and position in the stack. 3D-visualization allow verification of the stack geometric parameters and animation of the heat exchanger air inlet temperatures, inlet and outlet coolant temperatures and heat transfer. Stack models with 2 - 6 heat exchangers are included.
The component LiquidCooling.Utilities.Visualizers.Components.HXDiagramVisualization has been added to generate a presentation of the resulting heat transfer and temperatures of a heat exchanger directly in the diagram layer. The experiment model LiquidCooling.HeatExchangers.Stacks.Experiments.HeatExchangerStack_4 illustrate its use to present the results of a stack of four heat exchangers. To show the results, the model must be simulated and the diagram layer activated in the simulation mode.
Other new features and improvements
Conversion of user models from 1.0
Some classes have moved in the library structure or changed name since version 1.0 of LCL. The provided conversion script can perform all required conversions of user models.
Note that users of the table based, fixed water - glycol mixtures will be converted to medium models using IIF reference data.
Liquid Cooling Library 1.1 is based on the Modelon Base Library 1.8
