DirectionalControl - Overview
These classes model directional control valves actuated by electric coils. The laminar/turbulent flow through the valve is modelled as flow through orifices without cavitation. The commanded opening of the valve is input at commandA or commandB, respectively.
The flow capacity of the valve is specified by parameter at the pressure drop . When the pump pressure and the flow rate is high, the unbalanced forces and flow forces acting on the spool are higher than the force generated by the solenoid and the valve is partially closed. The effect can be modelled by the parameters and .
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, , may be different from the time to shift to the neutral position, .
