Abstract:

This paper presents a computer methodology to calculate flow through a pressure regulating valve for different opening percentages and a given pressure differential. The methodology is implemented using simple spreadsheet computations and a manual calibration technique to fit a particular valve. A detailed description of the equations is also presented so that this methodology can be transferred to other computer programs.
