Abstract:

A model of a pressure controlled proportional fluid amplifier was designed and constructed to investigate the effects of vent length and supply pressure on the steady state and dynamic response of the device. Six different supply pressures, six vent lengths, and two receiver loadings were considered for the steady state investigation. Steady state gain of the device was seen to increase with increasing vent length for both receiver loadings considered. Supply pressure effects on normalized steady state performance were negligible.
