Spool valve with an input signal that controls the orifice area
The Spool Valve component models a spool valve controlled by a signal that sets the orifice area.
The pressure-flow characteristic is based on the equations of the Orifice component.
The boolean parameters Use volume A and Use volume B, when true, add optional volumes VA and VB to ports A and B, respectively. See Port Volumes for details.
If two orifices or valves are connected, enabling a volume at the common port reduces the the stiffness of the system and improves the solvability.

Unit of area used in input signal
Use volume A
When true a hydraulic volume chamber is added to portA
Volume of chamber A
Use volume B
When true a hydraulic volume chamber is added to portB
Volume of chamber B
