Ventil zur Öffnung/Schließung ansteuern/...
Explanation:
...Öffnungsimpuls auslösen." Check how these fit in your sentence/context.

I'm not sure there are equivalent verbs in German, but these expressions should definitely do. "To drive" is translated with "ansteuern" which retains the etymology of "to drive", and the same with "Impuls auslösen" for "to pulse".

Cheerio,
Dierk
