Abstract : An analytical and experimental study was conducted for predicting the steady state and dynamic response of a jet interaction proportional fluid amplifier. The analysis is based on a physical model using a lumped parameter approach. The dynamics of the control and receiver lines together with various interacting fluid phenomena occurring within the amplifier are examined. Flow resistances are determined experimentally and the resulting values used in the analytical model. The dynamic model is presented in an analog format suitable for simulation on a digital computer.
