This study designed a new type of intelligent thermostatic mixing valve which could keep the temperature and flux of the outlet water constant by the adaptive controller. It firstly established mathematical model of the valve about angle-flux and angle-temperature and then it applied the “Fluent” software to numerical simulation of the valve about flow field based on the two-equation turbulence model. Finally, it designed the intelligent controller hardware and developed the controlling software of the valve. With the controller and it finished experiments with the thermostatic valve prototype. The results of simulation and experiments prove that the correctness of the theoretical research and they can be used to improve designing of the thermostatic valve.
