Shuttle valve with pressure bias
The Shuttle Valve component allows flow out of port C from the either port A or port B, depending which has the higher pressure.
Based on the orifice area, the pressure vs. flow rate relationship is calculated by the formulation used in the Orifice component.
The boolean parameters Use volume A, Use volume B, and Use volume C, when true, add optional volumes VA, VB, and VC to ports A, B, and C, respectively.
Hydraulic port of left inlet
Hydraulic port of right inlet
Hydraulic port of bottom outlet
Pressure difference to make one side fully open
Orifice area when closed (leakage)
Orifice area when fully open
True (checked) means a first-order dynamics is used for the valve areas
Use constant Cd
True (checked) means a constant coefficient of discharge is implemented, otherwise a variable Cd is used in flow calculation
Flow-discharge coefficient; used when Use constant Cd is true
Reynolds number at critical flow; used when Use constant Cd is true
Maximum flow-discharge coefficient; used when Use constant Cd is false
Critical flow number; used when Use constant Cd is false
Use volume A
True (checked) means a hydraulic volume chamber is added to portA
Volume of chamber A
Use volume B
True (checked) means a hydraulic volume chamber is added to portB
Volume of chamber B
Use volume C
True (checked) means a hydraulic volume chamber is added to portC
Volume of chamber C
