Hello all.

I want to simulate a case that volume flow through one outlet should be governed by pressure outlet.
This need try and error to find the correct pressure to be set through the outlet which results in the desired volume flow.
I am wondering if there is any possibility to automatize this process. For example, read the volume flow through the outlet after a couple of iterations, do the math and set a new pressure to the BC until gaining the flow that is desired?
