The flow in the unloading system of the control valve is modelled using the numerical simulation. The proportional flow values for various widths of the slot and openings are evaluated. The changes of the pressure and Mach number in the space of the valve are recorded for the selected pressure ratios. The influence of the length of the slot on the mass flow changes is assessed. The results are compared with the experimental findings.
