Electronic Throttle

A throttle is a valve that regulates the amount of air entering the engine, which indirectly controls the power or speed of the engine.

Electronic Throttle Control system has a direct current motor that manipulates the throttle valve and a sensor to measure the throttle position. The return spring restores the throttle to the so-called limp-home position in the case of a power supply failure.
