How should I set a pressure based boundary conditions for filling a gas cylinder? The inlet pressure is 250 bar which is the gauge pressure, then what should I put for total pressure?

Click on "Boundary conditions"
Select the inlet boundary
Choose mass-flow-inlet or pressure-inlet
Set the parameters in mass-flow-inlet or pressure-inlet

Thank Toure for your reply. I did it but the pressure increases slowly when I put the results of my experiments. I should put high mass flow rate in order to have pressure increase according to my test which is not realistic. When I use pressure inlet BC the static pressure is 250 bar but I don't know what to set for total pressure. I do not have any estimate for Mach number changes with time.

In your "Pressure Inlet" box, your Gauge total pressure is 250 bar (if it is the relative pressure to the atmospher).
The problem is the "Operating conditions". I don't know if it's possible to choose a point at the inlet and give the pressure of 250 bar.
