The Modelica Liquid Cooling Library is used for modeling and simulation of liquid cooling systems for virtual prototyping, component dimensioning and control design.
The library includes more than 80 internal flow components such as pipes, bends and junctions with predictive geometry-based flow resistance correlations. It also includes generic components that can be calibrated from measurement data.
More than twenty fluid models are provided in the library, with temperature-dependent properties to support cooling system modeling for water, customizable glycol-water and alcohol-water mixtures, every relevant water-salt mixture (e.g. potassium carbonate), calcium chloride, sodium chloride, potassium acetate, etc. The library also contains SAE oil model and even jetfuels.
Pre-configured templates guide users in creating simplified, high-performance heat exchanger stack models with 3D visualizations for parameter verification and presentation of resulting temperatures.
The Liquid Cooling Library can be used effectively in conjunction with geometry-based models from the Heat Exchanger Library.
