 August 22, 2011, 09:58 Transient simulation (Problem with massflow and Pressure) #1 New Member   Christian F Join Date: Mar 2011 Posts: 8 Rep Power: 8 Hello everybody, i am simulating a rotary piston engine. The Simulation is working but the problem is the following: At the beginning the pressure inside of the cylinder is 0 bar (reference pressure is 1 bar). At the inlet the pressure is 3 bar. While the piston is moving, air is flowing from the intlet in the cylinder and the pressure rises. When the pressure in the cylinder is reaching the 3 bars (The maximum pressure) the pressure an massflow increase from the inlet into the cylinder should go down, but i am reaching even 3.5 bars until the massflow goes down. As you can see in the diagram the pressure for a certain time step is not changing anymore after some iteration steps. So i am only reaching the 3 bars after some timesteps (which is of course different to the reality). In a steady state analysis for a certain Piston positon i am reaching the 3 bars after about 30 iteration steps. So what do i have to do to get the simulation closer to the reality? Thanks.
