The Pneumatic Systems library (PSL) by Dassault Systèmes is aimed at modeling pneumatic power systems. Typically, such systems involve actuators in industrial plants, pneumatic brakes or suspension systems, etc. Also, this library suitable for aerospace applications such as cooling or engine bleed air systems. The library deals with common problems modelling fluid flow in Modelica like accuracy in throttles or multi-sided connectors.
