This model describes a constant volume buffer with metal walls. The metal wall temperature and the heat transfer coefficient between the wall and the fluid are uniform. The wall is thermally insulated from the outside.

If the inlet or the outlet are connected to a bank of tubes, the model can actually represent a collector or a distributor.

Modelling options

The actual gas used in the component is determined by the replaceable Medium package. In the case of multiple component, variable composition gases, the start composition is given by Xstart, whose default value is Medium.reference_X .
