According to researches, we find that installing a three-way pressure compensation valve and an overflow valve on the proportional reversing valve can not only greatly improve its response frequency, making the hydraulic system has a strong ability to resist load changes, but also reduce the energy loss of the hydraulic system during flow regulation, making it a kind of energy-saving proportional solenoid valve. So next, we will talk about this energy-saving valve in details.

## The Main Structure of the Proportional Solenoid Valve

As shown in the following figure, the energy-saving proportional solenoid valve mainly consists of proportional reversing valve 1, pressure compensation valve 2, overflow valve 3 and the valve body 4. After the pressure oil enters the valve body 4 through the oil inlet P, it can selectively enter 3 different loops: one can reach the return port T through the pressure compensation valve 2.  Another one can reach the oil inlet of the proportional reversing valve. The third one is connected to the pressure gauge. Among them, the control oil port of the pressure compensation valve 2 is connected with the oil outlet port A, and the oil outlet port A is also connected with the inlet port of the overflow valve 3. Finally, the oil outlet port of the overflow valve 3 will be connected with the oil outlet T.

Energy-saving Proportional Solenoid Valve Hydraulic Circuit

The energy-saving proportional solenoid valve and hydraulic system are connected as follows: the hydraulic pump is connected with the oil inlet P, the oil return port T is connected with the oil return port of the hydraulic oil tank, and the port A is connected with the execute component.

## Operation Processes

When the solenoid of the proportional reversing valve 1 is not energized, the pressure oil will flow back to the hydraulic oil tank through the pressure compensation valve 2 and the return oil port T of the valve body 4. The set pressure of the pressure compensation valve 2 is only 1MPa. At this point, the hydraulic pump is almost in the unloading state with the lowest energy loss. Nevertheless, When the solenoid of the proportional reversing valve 1 is energized, the port P will be connected to port A, the oil circuit of the pressure compensation valve 2 will in a state of disconnection, and the pressure oil will enter the execute component through the proportional reversing valve 1.

When the load pressure fluctuates, the upstream pressure of the proportional reversing valve 1 always changes with the load pressure under the regulation of the pressure compensation valve 2, making the proportional reversing valve 1 maintains a constant operating differential pressure and a stable load flow, so that the system has a better ability to resist the load change.

When the execute component is stuck and the system pressure increases instantaneously, the overflow valve 3 will play its role. The pressure oil will flow back to the hydraulic oil tank through the overflow valve 3 to protect the hydraulic component from the damage of the high pressure.
