Rotational Power Sensor

Measure the power between two flanges

 Description The Rotational Power Sensor component generates an output signal proportional to the power flow between two attached rotational flanges.
 Equations $y={K}_{\mathrm{toUnit}}{\mathrm{\tau }}_{a}{\stackrel{.}{\mathrm{\phi }}}_{a}\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{1.5ex}{0.0ex}}{\mathrm{\phi }}_{a}={\mathrm{\phi }}_{b}$ ${\mathrm{\tau }}_{a}+{\mathrm{\tau }}_{b}=0$

Variables

 Name Units Description Modelica ID ${\mathrm{\phi }}_{x}$ $\mathrm{rad}$ Absolute angle of flange $x,x\in \left\{a,b\right\}$ flange_x.phi ${\mathrm{\tau }}_{x}$ $Nm$ Torque at flange $x,x\in \left\{a,b\right\}$ flange_x.tau ${K}_{\mathrm{toUnit}}$ Conversion factor to selected units

Connections

 Name Description Modelica ID ${\mathrm{flange}}_{a}$ Rotational flange flange_a ${\mathrm{flange}}_{b}$ Rotational flange flange_b $y$ Sensor output y

Parameters

 Name Default Units Description Modelica ID $\mathrm{toUnit}$ $W$ Units of output signal toUnit
