Claims

1. A valve control device comprising:
a correction unit configured to correct hysteresis in output of a control valve according to an increasing/reducing direction of a control output value;
a detection unit configured to detect an actual output value to the control valve corresponding to the control output value; and
a forbidding unit configured to forbid correction by the correction unit, until a difference between the control output value and the actual output value becomes within a predetermined range, after the increasing/reducing direction of the control output value is switched.
2. The valve control device according to claim 1, further comprising a control unit configured to control the control valve and supply driving current to the control valve, wherein
the control valve is a linear control valve,
the control output value is a value of target current for the linear control valve set by the control unit, and
the actual output value is a value of actual current that is actually supplied to the linear control valve by the control unit.
3. The valve control device according to claim 2, wherein the control unit is configured to separately control a pressure-increasing-side linear control valve for increasing pressure or flow rate of a fluid when adjusting the pressure or the flow rate of the fluid to be supplied to a controlled object, and a pressure-reducing-side linear control valve for reducing pressure or flow rate of a fluid when adjusting the pressure or the flow rate of the fluid to be supplied to the controlled object, and adjust pilot pressure.
4. The valve control device according to claim 2, wherein the control unit is configured to set the control output value by a feed-forward control.
5. A liquid pressure control device comprising:
a pressure-increasing-side linear control valve configured to increase pressure or flow rate of a fluid to be supplied to a controlled object when adjusting the pressure or the flow rate of the fluid;
a pressure-reducing-side linear control valve configured to reduce pressure or flow rate of a fluid to be supplied to the controlled object when adjusting the pressure or the flow rate of the fluid; and
a valve control device configured to separately control the pressure-increasing-side linear control valve and the pressure-reducing-side linear control valve, to adjust pilot pressure and adjust the pressure or the flow rate of the fluid to be supplied to the controlled object, wherein
the valve control device comprises:
a correction unit configured to separately perform hysteresis corrections on the pressure-increasing-side linear control valve and the pressure-reducing-side linear control valve having hysteresis in outputs, according to increasing/reducing directions of target values of control outputs; and
a control unit configured to forbid the hysteresis corrections until differences between the target values and actual output values of the control outputs become within predetermined ranges, when the target values of the control outputs are switched to reverse directions.
6. A valve control method comprising:
correcting hysteresis in output of a control valve according to an increasing/reducing direction of a control output value;
detecting an actual output value to the control valve corresponding to the control output value; and
forbidding the correcting until a difference between the control output value and the actual output value becomes within a predetermined range, after the increasing/reducing direction of the control output value is switched.
