I'm trying to simulate a cooler for my hydraulic system.
The fluid does not always go through the cooler, only when the temperature is too high. There are some pipes in the cooler, they can cooling the fluid because of convection. My goal is to find the best cooling strategy, I may need to control the air velocity, the length and the diameter of the pipe.
But I didn't find the best item for the cooler, do you have any ideas?
You can find numerous valves in the Thermal Hydraulic library. Concerning the heat exchangers, several possibilities are available in the Cooling System, Thermal Hydraulic and HEAT libraries. For example you could start with half heat exchanger (based on a Thermal Hydraulic and a Pneumatic part).
