          From the manual

          Elements in a model are connected through any number of ports (AFPort), which are defined
          by the element template (AFElementTemplate). A port can be defined as an input port, an
          output port, or as an undirected port. The port defines how many connections can be made
          and the types of elements that can be connected.

           

          In analyses, directed ports (input and output ports) represent positive material flow and are
          used by connections. Undirected ports are used by attachments of meters and analyzers. The
          most common type of attachment in a model is a measurement or meter attached to a flow
          element.

           

          A connection (AFConnection) represents the link between the ports of two elements. The
          ports (AFPort), which are defined by the element template (AFElementTemplate), can be
          defined as an input port, an output port, or as an undirected port.
