MATLAB: SIMULINK How to connect gas charge accumulator to a pump/motor


How can I simulate a reversible pump/motor that draws fluid from a gas charged accumulator and dispenses the fluid to a reservoir afterwards, and for the reverse so the pump uses a source of torque to draw fluid from the reservoir through the pump to the gas charged accumulator?

  • SimHydraulics comes with blocks for all of those already: Pumps, gas-charged accumulator, tanks, valves, etc. A typical diagram could look as follows:
    The real challenge is getting all the parameters right :)
