Dual Rate Boosters: Analysis, Modeling and Experimental Evaluation of Their Performance 2007-01-1020
The paper describes the aims, the basic principles and the internal layout of Dual Rate boosters. It presents two models of Dual Rate boosters capable of reproducing their behavior in semi-stationary and dynamic conditions. The models can be adopted to evaluate the effect of the main parameters on the performance of the entire component. A sensitivity analysis is presented. Some comparisons between the performance of Dual Rate and Emergency Valve Assistance (EVA) boosters are dealt with, on the basis of experimental tests.
