Electrohydraulic servo drives can be found in many industrial applications. A typical design of a servo valve uses the known torque motor. The main concept of the design modification in the presented servovalve was concerned in the application of a piezoelectric bender actuator in the first valve stage, working between nozzles as a flapper. Reason for that is very complex machining and assembling...
