Hydraulic Proportional – Proportional Solenoid on a Throttle Valve

Solenoid force opposed by spring force = rate x displacement

Spool position is constant, when forces are balanced

Input (coil current) is directly proportional to output force
40% input => 5% flow (due to spool overlap, deadband)
80% input => 50% flow
