Experimental results for a unique design of a two-spool pressure control valve were reported by Anderson (1984). The first stage is a dynamically stable flapper-nozzle valve for which a mathematical model is already available (Lin and Akers, 1989a). For the second stage, however, which consists of two parallel spools in a common body, no such model existed. The purpose of this paper was therefore to construct such a model and to compare results calculated from it to experimental values. Moderately good agreement with experimental values was obtained.
