This component allows to join two separate flows into one. The model is based on mass and energy balance equations, without any mass or energy buildup, and without any pressure drop between the inlet and the outlets.

Since stream connectors are used in the library, this component is actually not necessary to handle a three-way connection. It can be used for a finer tuning of the simplified model for initialization using homotopy, in particularly hard-to-initialize systems, and it is included in the library for backwards compatibility.

Modelling options

If rev_in1, rev_in2 or rev_out is true, the respective flows reversal is allowed. If at least ona among these parameters is false, it is possible to set checkFlowDirection.

If checkFlowDirection is true, when the flow reversal happen where it is not allowed, the error message is showed.
