The function of proportional valves is to provide a smooth and continuous variation in flow or pressure in response to an electrical input. This paper discusses the parameters that affect the force versus position characteristics and dynamic behavior of a proportional solenoid (PS), which include dimensional characteristics, the air gap, current density and magnetic materials. The FEA (Finite Element Analysis) provides a reliable numerical technique for analyzing engineering designs. Also, different current densities in a specific plunger position are studied to obtain optimal PS specifications. Additionally, the magnetic flux density and the distribution of flux lines are introduced for the actual material in a specific plunger position. Then, the simulation and experimental results are compared.
