APP92: MEMS Fuel Flow Control Valve with a Magneto-Static Linear Actuator


Development effort of an electronically controlled, reduced scale, magneto-static, metering fuel valve system, which consists of a magneto-static linear actuator and a ‘hole-in-the-wall’ valve, is ongoing. The magneto-static actuator is designed to accommodate approximate 5 mg/sec of fuel flow (220 W) by moving a linearly actuated armature in a planar micro-valve. A Step motion of the actuator accurately controls amount of fuel stream with the valve.
