simscape example Model an Isothermal Hydraulic Actuator

1 view (last 30 days)
I fallow simscape example.
then I have question about that model.
in the example page, i set sine wave amplitude 24.
then, convert the signal and pass the 2-position valve actuator.
as a result, I can took the scope on the picture.
Q1. I put 24 amplitude sine wave but why value on the scope 0.001?
Q2. Why shape of scope is square?

Actuators are generally used to control the position of directional values. Its output will not be a sine wave even if a sine wave is given as an input. The output changes its state when the input reaches 50% of its peak value. The peak value of the output of the actuator can be changed. Its default value is 0.01 m. I would suggest you go through the documentation of a 2 Position Value Actuator to understand its working in detail.
