Table usage for FanPressure¶
The “FanPressure” boundary condition Assigns pressure inlet or outlet total pressure condition for a fan. This can be selected under “Custom” BC type for pressure.
For this BC the User specifies:
- The Pressure drop vs volumetric flow rate table (fan curve) as a CSV file upload.
The sample CSV file for a FanPressure is shown by the figure below: The fan curve is a table which links the pressure change to the averaged velocity through the fan. In the sample shown, ‘column 1’ is the ‘flow-rate‘ and ‘column 2’ is the ‘pressure values‘.
The figure below shows the settings required for a FanPressure boundary condition.
