If you have a tank with fluid and void and you set the top boundary to pressure and leave the fluid fraction to 1 then fluid 1 will enter the tank. If you set the fluid fraction to zero and a pressure boundary then the void will use that pressure and no fluid will enter the domain. However if you are using two-fluid then then having fluid fraction as 0 will allow fluid 2 to enter the domain. So fluid fraction of 1 for fluid 1 and fluid fraction 0 for void/fluid2. MC

The plunger can have a time-dependent velocity just like in the real machine.
