I have a pressure sustaining valve in my HAMMER model and would like to see its modulation behavior (% closure) in response to pressure transients during the transient simulation run. How can I do that?
We have a dedicated article which explains in detail about using modulated PSV's in operation in response to transients in HAMMER. Please note that modulating PSV's and FCV's are available in the latest build of HAMMER i.e. CONNECT Edition Update 3.2 (10.03.02.75) to make sure you have the latest version of HAMMER to work on this. Modulating PRV's was available since SELECTSeries 4 of HAMMER. See the below article for details;
Using Modulating PRV, PSV or FCV during a transient simulation
The article mainly covers how to modulate PRV's but the same principles can be applied for PSV's also.
Hope this helps.
