Default how to set initial pressure in a closed system
Posts: n/a

I am modelling a refrigeration system consisting of compressor , aftercooler, regenerator ,cold and hot end heat exchanger connecting tube and reservoir. This is a complete closed system.I want to set initial charging pressure of the whole system at 50 bar.Means when time t=0 whole system is at 50 bar.When reciprocating compressor piston moves back and throgg the compression and expanssion of gas takes place. Please help how to set this initial pressure.
