Control Valve Modeling

  1. Feb 21, 2012 #1
    1. I'm carrying out the modeling of control valve using Physical method as part of my project. The first step is to get the physical model representation of a valve and then carry out the modeling. Secondly, I need to incorporate friction in the modeling to see the effect. I've seen a number of valve (friction) physical models but the authors did not go beyond stating the equations. I need to be able to get a true model representations of valves and valves with friction and then convert them to state-space or any other suitable form that can be programmed in MATLAB. Any help will be highly appreciated. Thanks

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
