Component 514: Plenum by HVACSIM+
General Description
The output of this component is simply the sum of its inputs. The
single parameter, n, specifies the number of input flow rates to be summed. Up
to ten flow rates may be added together. Ten input flow rates are required by
the model, but only the first n are summed. The remaining inputs are ignored.
Nomenclature
n - number of input mass flow rates (1 <= n <= 10)
wi - ith input mass flow rate (kg/s)
wout - output mass flow rate
Mathematical Description
wout = w1 + w2 + ... + wn
NOTE: Inputs (n + 1) through 10 must be specified in the simulation, but are
ignored. Only the first n inputs are used.
