The parameter value
(a vector) is used to set the continous output y making it a vector of constantvalued signals. The output will always give rates per second, but rates can be entered in nonSIunits of time using the parameter timeBaseString
.
OutputType = Rate
the entered rates will be fractional rates (1 per unit of time
).displayUnit
for entering vectors. Nevessary conversions have thus to be made before: Any value entered should have unit = y.unit * s/time base
, so that the converted values will have unit = y.unit
.Given OutputType = Units.VolumeFlowRate, value = {1,2,3}, timeBase = "minute"
will result in the output y = {0.0166 [m3/s], 0.0333 [m3/s], 0.05 [m3/s]}
, thus the input wil be interpreted as base units ofr Volume
per minute.
