Abstract

This paper describes a technique to predict the transient response of pressure control device using electro-rheological fluid (ERF) by an electric-flow analogy. The inertance is calculated from the theoretical equation. The resistance and additional voltage source by the ER effect are derived theoretically by assuming the flow in the electrode annuli of the pressure control device as a flow of the Bingham fluid. The capacitance is determined to compare the time-responses of pressures by the prediction based on a model with the results of a simple experiment. The predictions of transient flow using the determined parameters of the model are in qualitatively good agreement with the experimental results.
