Two Way Valve  Two way valve with second-order spool dynamics

The Two Way Valve component describes a two way valve with second-order spool dynamics. The laminar/turbulent flow through the valve is modeled as flow through an orifice without cavitation. The parameter qnom gives the nominal flow rate of the fully opened valve at the pressure drop dpnom. The parameter dleak gives the equivalent diameter of an orifice to describe the leakage flow if the valve is closed.

Amax=qnom12ρk2Δpnom

Aleak=14πdleak2

The commanded relative opening of the valve is input at command.

The position of the spool is modeled as a second-order system with natural frequency ω0, damping damp, input command, and output position [0...1]. The flow area depends linearly on the spool position.

The mass and flow forces are not included. Use the modifier(s)

VolumeA(port_A(p(start=1e5,fixed=true)))

and/or

VolumeB(port_A(p(start=1e5,fixed=true)))

to set the initial condition(s) for the pressure of the lumped volume(s) Pa. Use the modifier(s)

TWVnS(FlA(position(start=0.1,fixed=true)))

or

TWVnS(FlA(velocity(start=0.1,fixed=true)))

or

TWVnS(FlA(velocity(start=0.1,fixed=true),position(start=1,fixed=true)))

to set the initial condition(s) for the position/velocity of the spool.
