A previous analysis into the dynamic behavior of the flapper-nozzle component of the electrohydraulic servovalve was performed after linearization of the equations relating to control piston flow (Lin and Akers, 1989a). This paper reports results for first-stage gain and for dynamic behavior when linearization has not been performed. Good agreement has been achieved between results calculated from the nonlinear theory presented and experimental results.
