Inlet Guide Vane Actuator (IGVA)

Inlet Guide Vane Acuator

The Inlet Guide Vane Actuator (IGVA) has a direct acting, 3-way clevis-type, servo valve used for actuation with an LVDT to provide position feedback. The servo valve fueldraulically drives the actuator rod. The Inlet Guide Vane Actuator is mounted on an aircraft Auxillary Power Unit (APU) and used to control the position of a load compressor’s inlet guide vanes. The IGVA has a low hysteresis and threshold with low electrical power consumption.
