      Thanks, Peter!

      It really helped me.

      Now next I want to put heat flux on or off according to programmed control.

      I want my model maximum temperature should not exceed 180 deg and also not fall below 175 deg.

      how to put logical heat flux load like below

      0180 deg=1500 Watt.

      Temp>180 deg=0 Watt.


      Thank you!

      Suraj, I don't know how to do this, but will be interested to find out.

      There is a 'combination' element in Mechanical APDL that can act as a thermostat.  See the two part blog entry on this at PADT - the link to part 1 is:
