The fuel metering valve is an important part of the aircraft fuel system and it controls the supply of metered fuel. In this paper, the closed-loop control principle of fuel metering valve is analyzed and the closed-loop control circuit of certain aero engine fuel metering valve is modeled and simulated by MATLAB/Simulink simulation software. The function of the Engine Electronic Controller (EEC) controls the opening of metering valve is simulated by establishing a model. A new idea is proposed to study the problem of the accessory limit value in the aircraft component maintenance manual through model simulation and the impact of the accessory limit value on the fuel metering valve is obtained.
