The purpose of this paper is to present the identification method of restriction parameter and deformation parameter for membrane‐type restrictors.
A worktable mounting on the open‐type hydrostatic bearing is utilized to calibrate recess pressures for regulating outlet pressures of restrictors by changing the load and then both restrictor parameters can be identified from the measurements of the inlet pressure, the outlet pressure, and the flow rate of a restrictor by minimizing the difference between measured and identified flow rates. Furthermore, the influences of supply pressure and restrictor designs on both parameters are also studied.
An identification method for single‐action membrane‐type (SAM) restrictors is obtained directly from experimental results. The measurements of inlet pressure, outlet pressure, and flow rate of the restrictor are substituted into the combined equations for minimization of error between measured and identified flow rates to be solved for restriction and deformation parameters. The identified results show that both parameters can be described by polynomial functions of supply pressure. Both polynomials are regressed by curve fitting from identified results.
The paper shows how to calibrate inlet and outlet pressures of restrictors for designing a hydrostatic bearing system by changing supply pressure and load applied on worktable for the measurements of both pressure and the flow rate of restrictor.
