1 CHARACTERIZATION AND MODELING OF A PROPORTIONAL VALVE FOR CONTROL SYNTHESIS Osama. OLABY, Xavier. BRN, Sylvie. SESMAT, Tanneguy. REDARCE and Eric. BIDEAX Laboraoire d Auomaique Indusrielle - hp://www-lai.insa-lyon.fr LAI, Bâ S Exupéry, 25 Av Jean Capelle INSA de Lyon, 69621Villeurbanne Cedex, FRANCE ( ABSTRACT This paper presens a global characerizaion and an analyical model of he saic flow sage of an elecro-pneumaic proporional valve FESTO MPYE-5-M5-010-B. This sudy is useful for linear or nonlinear conrol synhesis in our applicaion for medical roboics. Firsly, he experimenal measuremens are carried ou using 3D graphs where a se of curves gives he oupu mass flow rae as a funcion of he elecrical inpu of he elecronic sage for differen values of he oupu pressure. The exhaus and supply pressures, during hese ess, are assumed o be consan. Moreover, 2D classical curves given by some consrucors can be reconsruced, such as mass flow gain, pressure gain and mass flow characerizaion. Secondly, an approximaion of he mass flow sage characerisics of his five-way proporional valve by a polynomial funcion is described. The model elaboraed enables a good reproducion of he pressure gain and he global mass flow characerizaion curves o be obained. KEY WORDS Pneumaic proporional valve, Experimenal characerizaion, Modeling. I. INTRODCTION Pneumaic sysems are increasingly presen in a number of indusrial manufacuring procedures, handling, medical, armamen and roboics, ec. The use of proporional disribuors in pneumaic sysems has a pracical design and simple use, especially o carry ou he synhesis of he linear and nonlinear conrol laws in feedback conrol, for example posiion feedback conrol or force feedback conrol racking according o desired rajecories [1]. Moreover, he proporional valve is a power modulaor ha does no consume much energy [2],[3]. A servo-disribuor is known as proporional when i provides a mass flow rae in bi-direcional operaing mode which is a funcion of he inpu volage of he elecronic sage of he proporional valve. FESTO MPYE-5-M5-010B is a proporional valve, 5/3-way funcion, wih a maximum flow rae of abou 140 Nl/mn* a a supply pressure of 7 bar abs**. This mass flow rae is suiable for developing a medical robo (BirhSIM) [4],[5]. BirhSIM is a childbirh simulaor developed in collaboraion beween INSA Lyon (Insiu Naional des Sciences Appliquées) and HCL (Hospices Civils de Lyon) [6]. BirhSIM is a dynamic funcional simulaor, which akes ino accoun he movemen of a baby * 1 Nl/mn = g/s ** Thereafer, all he pressure values expressed in bar, will be in absolue bar.

2 hrough is moher s pelvis. In fac his ype of simulaor will help o each, in a realisic way, and in complee safey he medical echniques of childbirh in he midwife schools and he Faculy of Medicine. I has been developed o enable obsricans o learn how o perform he procedure for he firs ime. The operaive par of BirhSIM conains a pneumaic acuaor which produces he movemen of he head of he newborn and supplies a programmable resisance o he force of racion. The acuaor will enable BirhSIM o imiae conracions and he moher s pushing acion. This acuaor is a linear cylinder, double-acing and single rod which suppors he head of he newborn. This cylinder can posiion he newborn, and more paricularly is head, on a horizonal axis. Two FESTO MPYE-5-M5-010B proporional valves conrol his pneumaic cylinder. In order o carry ou he auomaic piloing of he elecro-pneumaic sysem, i is necessary o know he mahemaical model of he power modulaor. Servo-disribuor manufacurers do no provide sufficien characerisics o obain a model of he flow rae sage of he pneumaic componens in heir documenaion [7]. No precise characerisics are provided by FESTO. This is why he global saic characerisics (por P) of he proporional valve, were esablished. Moreover, experimenal measuremens carried ou can give a precise knowledge of he mass flow rae delivered by he flow sage of his proporional valve and hen a simulaion model can be deduced. These measuremens form a able, having as inpus he oupu pressure and he elecrical inpu of he elecronic sage inegraed ino he proporional disribuor and giving he oupu mass flow rae. The procedures followed o carry ou he global characerizaion of he FESTO proporional valve confirm he possibiliy of applying a proocol carried ou previously for a servo-disribuor of he Asco JOCOMATIC company [7],[8], o oher fluid power componens. Servoronic Asco JOCOMATIC is a hree-way elecro-pneumaic servovalve, is maximum flow rae is abou of 1400 Nl/mn. This flow rae value is much larger han ha of he FESTO MPYE-5-M5-010B proporional valve. This aricle is organized as follows: In secion II, he FESTO proporional valve is briefly described. In secion III, experimenal resuls of a global characerizaion of his ype of pneumaic componen is provided. Secion IV presens a mahemaical model of he saic flow rae sage. The resuls obained wih his model are compared wih he experimenal resuls and wo ypes of errors are hen discussed. II. SAGE OF THE PROPORTIONAL VALVE The MPYE-5-M5-010B proporional valve is a 5/3-way funcion disribuor. I is hus composed of five pors N, P, S, E and E wih hree configuraions for he air flow (Figure 1). The five ways presen an S orifice of compressed air (i is numbered orifice (1) by he manufacurer), wo working orifices for P(4), N(2) and wo for he exhaus E(3 and 5). For a volage of 5 V, when he spool is in mid-posiion, he flow rae of he disribuor is heoreically null. If he inpu conrol is varied from 5 V o 0 V, he compressed air exis from por (1) owards por (2) and he exhaus goes from por (4) owards por (5). By varying he volage of 5 V o 10 V, he compressed air exis from por (1) owards por (4) and he exhaus goes from por (2) owards por (3). III.

Phoograph and schema of a FESTO MPYE-5-M5-010B proporional valve EXPERIMENTAL CHARACTERIZATION RESLTS The characerizaion suggesed for he FESTO proporional valve is a global saic characerizaion for consan exhaus and supply pressures. Global since he oupu mass flow rae is given as a funcion of boh he elecrical proporional valve inpu and of he oupu pressure, he supply and exhaus pors being as in normal working condiions which means ha none of hem is shu. Saic, because for each variaion in he elecrical inpu conrol or in he oupu working pressure, he measuremen readings (pressure and flow rae) are aken when he flow rae is in esablished mode. Figure 2 shows he esing device used for measuring he desired characerisics of he por P(4) when he por N(2) is shu. The experimenal procedure consiss of recording he oupu flow rae for each variaion of he inpu volage and of he working pressure P P. I is necessary o vary one of hese wo independen values and o keep he oher consan. I can be seen from Figure 2 ha, for his purpose, he oupu pressure P P and he supply pressure (P S =7 bar) are kep consan by using wo pressure regulaors. Considering he nonlinear characer of his ype of componen (Figure 4), i was necessary o make more volage measuremens beween 4 V and 6 V. These values correspond oo o he significan par of he pressure gain characerisic a null mass flow rae (Figure 11).

In fac, if his characerisic is projeced on wo planes (,q m ) and (P P,q m ) he nework of mass flow gain (Figure 4) and he nework of mass flow rae characerizaion (Figure 5) can be obained respecively. Figure 4. Se of mass flow rae curves as a funcion of proporional valve inpu Figure 5. Se of mass flow rae curves as funcion of proporional valve oupu pressure Figure 3. 3D-global saic characerisics Figure 4 shows he evoluion of he oupu proporional valve mass flow rae q m as a funcion of elecrical inpu, for eigh differen values of he oupu pressure P P, disribued from 1.25 o 7 bar. In his figure is shown: The non-lineariy of he curves for values near he supply and exhaus pressures, for values of inpu conrol near he 5V value. The eigh curves are monoonous. A phenomenon of sauraion is noiced for he values of inpu conrol higher han 8 V and lower han 2V. This nework clearly shows he classical behavior of he servo-disribuor orifices relaed eiher o a supply process or o an exhaus process for large absolue values of he valve proporional inpu conrol. Each of he wo ses of curves (Figure 4 and 5) deermines simply he variaion of mass flow rae agains boh an oupu pressure P P and an inpu conrol. This consiues useful informaion abou he power modulaor under sudy which is no direcly available on he manufacurer documenaion. This informaion enables a simulaion model of he saic flow sage in he form of an easily programmable 3D-able o be used for any simulaion. By inerpolaion beween he poins, i

4 gives he real global mass flow rae a he oupu por whaever are he oupu pressure and he inpu conrol. IV. ANALYTICAL CONTROL MODEL The synhesis of cerain conrol laws requires he knowledge of a flow sage model in a mahemaical form [2]. The modeling of a servodisribuor enables he mass flow rae a is oupu as a funcion of he oupu working pressure, and of he elecrical inpu conrol o be deermined. For he conrol objecive, i is ried o reproduce he saic behavior of he FESTO disribuor proporional valve, via a mahemaical expression. A mehod had been proposed, using a mahemaical expression of he mass flow rae evoluion law, depending on he global characerisics of he servo-disribuor JOCOMATIC SERVOTRONIC [8]. This conrol model for he FESTO proporional valve is validaed by carrying ou a ranslaion of he valve-inpu conrol o new values of conrol varying around 0V: ( = ). The value equal o V (deduced from he measuremens) corresponds o he inersecion poin of he pressure gain characerizaion orifice P and orifice N hus o he same pressure on boh oupu pors. The mahemaical expression affine in he conrol inpu is : m (, PP ) = ( PP ) + ψ ( PP, sgn( )) q ϕ (1) ( P ) q m, illusraes a mass flow rae (Nl/mn) ha P is a funcion of he working pressure P p and an inpu conrol volage. ϕ P is a polynomial funcion whose evoluion corresponds o he mass flow rae leakage (Nl/mn) from he orifice P. I is idenical for all inpu conrol values (Figure 6. ) ( ) Figure 6. Approximaion of mass flow rae measured for = 0 ϕ p : Funcion ( ) ( P, sgn( )) ψ P is a polynomial funcion of he inpu conrol sign (Figure 7) because i is differen for he > 0 < 0. inle ( ) and for he exhaus ( ) Figure 7. Approximaion of he ( P, sgn( )) P ψ funcion. The form of he mass flow rae shown in Figure 5. jusifies he approximaion by wo differen ψ funcions, one defined for posiive values of and he oher for negaive values. The nonlinear shape of he global characerisics of he mass flow rae, as a funcion of he oupu pressure and he inpu conrol, jusifies he choice of he polynomial funcion of he form (1). The minimal degrees of he polynomials ϕ ( P ), ψ ( P, < 0) ( ) and ψ P, > 0 o have he smalles absolue esimaed error, equal o 4, 4 and 5 respecively. IV.1. CONTROL MODEL VALIDATION In his paragraph, a comparison of he characerisics resuling from he approximaions wih hose resuling from he experimenal measuremens of he FESTO proporional valve ( secion III ) is presened. Figure 8 shows he evoluion of he mass flow rae as a funcion of he elecrical inpu conrol and he working pressure according o equaion (1). This wo-dimensional evoluion has a shape raher near ha of he saic global wo-dimensional characerisic of he FESTO MPYE-5-M5-010B proporional valve, as illusraed in Figure 3. In fac i can be observed in Figures 9 and 10 ha he mass flow rae reconsiued from he equaion (1), gives good resuls comparaively o he measuremens excep for: he negaive values of he inpu conrol wih oupu pressures P P equal o 6, 6.5 and 7 bar. he posiive values of inpu conrol wih a working pressure P P near o ha of he amospheric pressure (1.25 bar and 1.5 bar).

Comparison: Experimenal and reconsiued se of mass flow rae curves as a funcion of valve inpu These errors are no roublesome for he uses under consideraion, because he pressure domains correspond o exreme values close o he supply or exhaus pressures which will no be examined very much. An oher way o validae he obained approximaion is o compare he pressure gain characerisic P P a null mass flow rae reconsiued from equaion (1) wih he measured characerisic. I can be observed in Figure 11 ha he approximaion gives good resuls compared o he measuremens. In fac he slope of he pressure gain reconsiued is larger han ha measured in he experimens. In his inerval he displacemen of he valve spool causes he opening of one of he working orifices P or N and he closing of he oher. Figure 11. Comparison: Experimenal and reconsiued pressure gain curve IV.2. MODELING ERROR Two crieria are presened o validae he conrol model. On one hand, an absolue error of mass flow rae is obained ha is low on all he applicaion fields of he FESTO proporional valve. On he oher hand, a relaive error of he mass flow rae for he greaes opening zone of a passage of fluid esimaed for his componen is obained. The absolue errors of he mass flow rae generaed by he conrol model given by he equaion (1) are weak (beween -15 Nl/mn and +15 Nl/mn) as shown in Figure 12. They are maximal a he edges of he pressure field P P. The relaive errors of mass flow raes generaed by he approximaions for he values of elecrical inpu conrol

6 ouside he inerval [-1, +1], are beween -10% and +15% (Figure 13) was validaed by reconsiuing he global wo-dimensional characerizaions and he pressure gain curve a null mass flow rae. The good resuls obained show ha he characerizaion and modeling proocol of a servo-disribuor carried ou previously [7] can be used for anoher pneumaic modulaors. The weak errors of he mass flow rae enabled he conrol model o be validaed. A conrol synhesis would enable he simulaor BirhSIM o be auomaed. In fac he generaion of inpu rajecories for our sysem is an imporan problem o resolve in order o ranslae he medical condiions ino an auomaion problem. Laer i will be necessary o synhesize robus conrols which will enable o ake ino accoun he known errors of he flow sage model. This will enable o minimize racking errors in a highly non-linear field.

CONCLSION In his paper an analyical model of a MPYE-5-M5-010B proporional 5/3-way valve from he FESTO company has been presened. The mahemaical model has been obained afer realizing a global characerizaion of he saic flow sage of his servo flow conrol valve. The experimenal measuremens carried ou for a characerizaion in hree-dimensions (mass flow rae, oupu pressure and elecrical inpu conrol), can be used as a simulaion model.
