 Port Volumes - MapleSim Help

Hydraulic Port Volumes Description Some hydraulic models have optional volumes connected to their ports that are instantiated when the corresponding Use volume X boolean parameter is set to true (checked). When a port volume is enabled, the icon changes to show an oval volume connected to the port. The following equations are added to the model. The $K$ parameter is the bulk modulus of the fluid. Equations ${q}_{\mathrm{VX}}=\left\{\begin{array}{cc}\frac{\mathrm{d}{V}_{{f}_{X}}}{\mathrm{d}t}& \mathrm{Use volume X}\\ 0& \mathrm{otherwise}\end{array}$ ${V}_{{f}_{X}}={V}_{X}\left(1+\frac{{p}_{X}}{K}\right)$ Variables
