CFD Simulations and Tests of a Prototype Flow Control Valve

Abstract

In this paper a prototype of a flow control valve is described and numerically simulated. The flow control valve is used in hydraulic systems to maintain constant fluid flow despite changing loads of a receiver. The standard construction of this type of valves is modified mainly by eliminating the spring. The prototype consists the hydrostatically unloaded throttle valve and pressure ratio valve substituting pressure difference valve. The article concentrates on numerical simulation conducted for different positions of pressure ratio valve’s spool and various throttle valve settings. Additionally the rotation of the spool is included in simulation and its influence on valve’s characteristics is evaluated. The article also describes the methodology of determining flow characteristics of control valve. Results from numerical simulation are compared to results of experimental research.
