252 - Shape Optimization of a Solenoid Valve

252 - Shape Optimization of a Solenoid Valve

For the good functioning of a solenoid valve, we want that the solenoid valve is as responsive as possible to the opening and closing commands. For this, we want to optimize the rise time of the solenoid valve's mover. But at the same time we want to make sure that the volume of the solenoid valve doesn't increase much.

245 - Control of an Injector and the Impact of Eddy Currents

245 - Control of an Injector and the Impact of Eddy Currents

JMAG allow us to connect directly a MATLAB/Simulink simulation with a JMAG one. When can therefore see the impact of the control system directly on our design. Furthermore we can now also see the impact that eddy currents can have on the response of our design to control we want to apply. In this example, we are going to look at the difference in response of an injector considering eddy currents or not considering them.

242 - Analysis of the Attractive Forceof a Solenoid Valve Taking Into Account the Inclination of the Mover

242 - Analysis of the Attractive Force of a Solenoid Valve Taking Into Account the Inclination of the Mover

Solenoid valves are used to adjust the inflow or outflow of liquids or gases by translational movement of the iron core. If an electric current is passed through the coil, an electromagnet is created and an electromagnetic attractive force is generated between the moving part and the fixed parts. Since high responsiveness is required for valve opening and closing, an important item to consider is whether or not the power source used for driving and the solenoid valve used satisfy the required responsiveness and attractive force.

192 - Response Characteristics Analysis of Solenoid Valves Accounting for Residual Magnetization

192 - Response Characteristics Analysis of Solenoid Valves Accounting for Residual Magnetization

A solenoid valve becomes an electromagnet by applying current through the coil and moves the plunger by using electromagnetic force (attractive force) generated in the magnetic materials. Especially in products that require a quick response in the plunger, the time it takes for the valve to open and close is an evaluation indicator,...

189 - Response Characteristics Analysis of Injectors Accounting for Collision

A solenoid type injector used in engines opens a valve and injects fuel by moving a plunger with magnetic force created by an electromagnet. Injectors in engines need to respond quickly for applied voltage to improve fuel consumption by maintaining the amount of fuel flow.

98 - Response Analysis of a Solenoid Valve Using a Control Simulator and the JMAG-RT

98 - Response Analysis of a Solenoid Valve Using a Control Simulator and the JMAG-RT

A solenoid valve opens and closes valves using the force of electromagnets. A valve that controls the amount of fluid flowing has various states of open and closed. For this reason, this analysis evaluates the response, such as the speed and position control, of a valve to commands. An analysis that accounts for...

62 - Attractive Force Analysis of a Solenoid Valve

62 - Attractive Force Analysis of a Solenoid Valve

Solenoid valves move their iron cores in a translational direction, and are used to adjust the inflow and outflow amounts of liquids and gasses. Running current through the coil forms an electromagnet, which generates an electromagnetic attraction force between the mover and stator.
