Hello everyone,

I'm trying to verify my Kvs for a regulation valve with Ansys.

As you know the Kvs value has to be calculated with water and 1 bar differential pressure

My question is this: I was thinking using Inlet Pressure and Outlet Pressure as boundary conditions, with:
_ Inlet Pressure: Gauge total pressure 10 bars
_ Outlet Pressure: Gauge total pressure 9 bars

Is it correct to process this way ?

I am still a bit confused with all the pressure in Ansys, as many of us.

Thank you
