Temperature controller for conjugate heat transfer


#1

It would be very useful to be able to introduce a temperature controller in transient conjugate heat transfer simulations. The idea is that you choose a probe point as a temperature sensor and then set a boundary condition for say a heat flux, whose magnitude is controlled by a control algorithm which reduces the difference between the set-point and the probe temperature.

It may be complex to tune a PID algorithm, but a thermostat or linear controller (with manual chosen gain) should both be quite easy to implement

Thanks a lot for your feedback @roy_g!

Will forward this to our engineers to see if something like that is on the roadmap or a workaround to this is already available.

Cheers,
