Fuel System Library is a Modelica library targeting the design and verification of fuel systems on civil and military aircraft. The library is designed to analyze and verify the system behavior during various dynamic operating modes and flight conditions.
Aircraft are characterized by large variations in acceleration and orientation. The Fuel System Library provides simulation results accounting for these effects on fuel-air mixtures and includes full support of bidirectional flow.
Fuel System Library has been developed internally at Modelon for a number of years together with a European airframer; starting with version 3.1, it is now publicly available. Modelon is therefore now able to offer a package hardened through industrial program deployment.
The models have been designed to be numerically robust and can handle large-scale complex systems. Component models include ejectors, pumps, tanks, valves and pipes.
