Models and white paper on obtaining realistic parameter values from data sheets and measured data.

obj_find_valve_param_table_3way(x,Q_r)
function F  = obj_find_valve_param_table_3way(x,Q_r)
% Objective function to find out the required area vs. spool displacement
% relationship for 3-way valve.

% x - vector of variable parameters. It is constructed of ten area values
% a_1 ... a_max - cross-sectional area of the valve at 10 successive 
% spool position s_1 ... s_10. The positions are set by shifting the spool
% from zero to its maximum opening at constant speed.

% Q_r - required flow rate expressed in percentage with respect to its
% maximum flow and maximum displacement

% Q_max - maximum flow rate
