How to select a Servo or Proportional valve Introduction

Criteria of valve sizing Following criteria's have to be considered for sizing a valve! • Which

kind of actuator shall be taken • Differential cylinder • Synchronising cylinder • Hydromotor

• The

conditions of the actuators • Dimension of the actuator • Maximum required flow and pressure • The natural frequency of the actuator • What kind of controler is needed ( position, force, speed )

• Possible MOOG Training

disturbances and environmental conditions Seite 2

Valve sizing 6 Steps • Determination of the needed pressure at the cylinder • Determination of the Pressure Drop of the Servovalve • Determination of the needed maximal Flow • Determination of the natural frequency of the actuator • Selection of the Servovalve • Calculation of the gain loop and therefore the accuracy of the controller

Step 1 Determination of the needed pressure on the actuator The needed pressure „P“ relates on

F

A Surface of the piston „A“

Formula

Pload = F / A MOOG Training

Loaded force „F“

Pload = 9000N / 15,26 cm² Pload = 590 N/cm² Equivalent to Pload = 59 bar => 60 bar (1bar = 10N/cm²) Pload = 590000 Pa (Pascal) Seite 5

Step 2 Determination of the pressure drop at the Servovalve 1/3 - 2/3 Rule This rules describes the best condition •1/3 Pressure drop at the valve •2/3 Pressure drop at the actuator

Formula

Q = vmax * A

Requested max speed (*1)

Q = (30cm/1,5 sec) * 15,26 cm² Q = 20 cm/sec * 15,26 cm² Q = 305 cm³ / sec Equivalent to

Q = 18,3 L/min MOOG Training

*1: The requested speed have to be calculated with and with out load

Step 4 Determination of the natural frequency of the actuator Natural frequency “ωo“ or „f“ relates on

m spring constant “C”

the mass “m”

Each actuator has to be considered as a hydraulic spring-mass system All fluids are compressible and therefore they are reacting like a spring.

f1/3 = 24,5 Hz / 3 = 8,71 Hz MOOG Training *1: calculation based on : Synchronising cylinder / valve installed direct on the cylinder

Step 5 Selection of the servovalve Principle criteria's of valve sizing for position and speed controler The smallest possible valve for the application is the best valve The natural frequency of the valve should be 2,5 to 3 times higher then the natural frequency of the valve The trapped oil between valve and actuator should be as small as possible Oil Volume

The natural frequency of the sensor should be 10 times higher

Step 5 Selection of the servovalve Principle criteria’s of valve sizing for force/pressure controller The smallest possible valve for the application is the best valve The faster the valve the better the damping which is necessary for a stable closed loop controller The higher the oil capacity (volume) the better Oil Volume

Smaller flow pressure gain The natural frequency of the sensor should be 10 times higher MOOG Training

Step 5 Selection of the servovalve / valve sizing The flow rate of servo valves is determined in the catalogues at 70 or 10 bars. There are two ways to select the needed valve size and type. Selection from the Flow / Pressure Diagram
