Information

This information is part of the Modelica Standard Library maintained by the Modelica Association.

Valve model according to the IEC 534/ISA S.75 standards for valve sizing, incompressible fluids.

The parameters of this model are explained in detail in PartialValve (the base model for valves).

This model assumes that the fluid has a low compressibility, which is always the case for liquids. It can also be used with gases, provided that the pressure drop is lower than 0.2 times the absolute pressure at the inlet, so that the fluid density does not change much inside the valve.

If checkValve is false, the valve supports reverse flow, with a symmetric flow characteristic curve. Otherwise, reverse flow is stopped (check valve behaviour).

The treatment of parameters Kv and Cv is explained in detail in the User's Guide.
