0D Control Volume Class¶
The ControlVolume0DBlock block is the most commonly used Control Volume class, and is used for systems where there is a well-mixed volume of fluid, or where variations in spatial domains are considered to be negligible. ControlVolume0DBlock blocks generally contain two StateBlocks - one for the incoming material and one for the material within and leaving the volume - and one StateBlocks.
- class idaes.core.base.control_volume0d.ControlVolume0DBlock(*args, **kwds)¶
ControlVolume0DBlock is a specialized Pyomo block for IDAES non-discretized control volume blocks, and contains instances of ControlVolume0DBlockData.
ControlVolume0DBlock should be used for any control volume with a defined volume and distinct inlets and outlets which does not require spatial discretization. This encompases most basic unit models used in process modeling.
- Parameters
rule (function) – A rule function or None. Default rule calls build().
concrete (bool) – If True, make this a toplevel model. Default - False.
ctype (class) – Pyomo ctype of the block. Default - pyomo.environ.Block

Default ProcessBlockData config

- dynamic
Indicates whether this model will be dynamic, default - useDefault. Valid values: { useDefault - get flag from parent, True - set as a dynamic model, False - set as a steady-state model}
- has_holdup
Indicates whether holdup terms should be constructed or not. Must be True if dynamic = True, default - False. Valid values: { True - construct holdup terms, False - do not construct holdup terms}
- property_package
Property parameter object used to define property calculations, default - useDefault. Valid values: { useDefault - use default package from parent model or flowsheet, PropertyParameterObject - a PropertyParameterBlock object.}

- reaction_package_args
A ConfigBlock with arguments to be passed to a reaction block(s) and used when constructing these, default - None. Valid values: { see reaction package for documentation.}
- auto_construct
If set to True, this argument will trigger the auto_construct method which will attempt to construct a set of material, energy and momentum balance equations based on the parent unit’s config block. The parent unit must have a config block which derives from CONFIG_Base, default - False. Valid values: { True - use automatic construction, False - do not use automatic construciton.}
initialize (dict) – ProcessBlockData config for individual elements. Keys are BlockData indexes and values are dictionaries described under the “default” argument above.
idx_map (function) – Function to take the index of a BlockData element and return the index in the initialize dict from which to read arguments. This can be provided to overide the default behavior of matching the BlockData index exactly to the index in initialize.

add_geometry¶
The add_geometry method creates a single variable within the control volume named volume indexed by time (allowing for varying volume over time). A number of other methods depend on this variable being present, thus this method should generally be called first.
