Coils_X_3  Interface for a coil of a three-position directional control valve

The Coils_X_3 component describes the spool position of a directional control valve that has two coils.

The commanded opening of the valve is input at commandA or commandB, respectively. The position of the spool (spoolPos) is modeled as a first-order system.

Input signals: commandA and commandB.

When commandA=true and commandB=false, then spoolPos=1.

When commandA=false and commandB=true, then spoolPos=1.

Otherwise, spoolPos=0.

Intermediate positions are also modeled.

The movement of the spool is described by a first-order system. This is appropriate for valves that are directly actuated by a spool. The time to shift from the neutral position to an end position (τopening) may be different than the time to shift to the neutral position (τclosing).
