Simulating Solenoid Valves

The ability to accurately simulate power consumption of a satellite and its systems can be invaluable to a satellite system integrator. This paper describes a load to simulate a solenoid valve’s power consumption with passive electrical parts. This simulation load can help a satellite system integrator understand the power requirements needed to actuate the solenoid valve without the need for the physical valve. The proposed solution in this paper uses an inductor and a resistor in series to match the inductance and the resistance of the solenoid valve.
