Optimization Design of Turbine Flow Sensor in Hydrovalve
The water level in refrigerator must be controlled accurately in order to adjust the refrigerator’s temperature, namely, a flow sensor needs to be designed to measure the water flow into the flume precisely according to the hydro-valve’s structure. In this paper, the simulation analysis has been done using the software FLUENT on the basis of theoretical analysis of the sensor, and the optimization design of the flow sensor structure has been given according to the analysis results, the results show that the flow characteristics of the sensor has been improved.
