Control Valve with a Constant Inner Authority Value

  • Damian Piotr Muniak
Article

Abstract

The aim of the article is to propose the method of designing double regulation control valves used in heating installations, allowing to obtain a constant value of the so-called inner authority and thus the constancy of the valve control characteristic, regardless of the pre-setting value set on the valve. The shape of the valve's regulation characteristics is one of the main factors determining the quality of the quantitative regulation, and thus the stability of the system's operation and overall operating costs. For this reason, the issue discussed in the article is important and can be applied in practical implementations of the valve sizing and the valve selection.

The analysis was based on the relations binding the hydraulic resistances occurring inside the control valve, and the corresponding flow factors, using original author’s proposal.

The experimental verification was performed on a special measuring stand prepared for this purpose, measuring the values of the medium volume flow at a constant differential pressure, and then the results were converted into values of the flow factor, used in the proposed mathematical model.

The results confirm the thesis put forward and the proposed mathematical model. High convergence of the results of experimental verification with the proposed mathematical model was obtained.
