MAS211-G Hydraulic Systems and Components 1
Norwegian and English. Lectures are in Norwegian. Textbooks are in English, and international students are offered special tuition in English.
After completing the course, the student is expected to
- understand the basic functionality of hydraulic components
- be able to calculate and specify hydraulic components
- understand the basic methods of force, speed, and power control of hydraulically controlled mechanical degrees of freedom
- is able to calculate and specify the force, speed, and power control of hydraulically actuated mechanical degrees of freedom
- be able to analyze and design hydraulic systems
- be able to read hydraulic diagrams
Hydraulic Components: Hydraulic fluids, pumps, motors, cylinders, directional valves, pressure control valves, flow control valves, pipes, hoses, accumulators, filters, and tanks.
Calculation procedures: Stationary analysis of flow and pressure conditions in hydraulic components and systems. This includes flow continuity, static equilibrium of pumps and actuators, pressure drop in restrictions, static equilibrium for valve spools, and isothermal and adiabatic analysis of accumulators.
Control: Pump based pressure, flow, and power control as well as valve-based open and closed loop control of pressure and flow.
System Analysis and Design: Step by step approach to the specification of components and their composition. Reading of hydraulic diagrams is introduced continuously.
Lectures and exercises/laboratory work in groups.
Satisfactory submission of compulsory exercises.
Written examination, 4 hours. Graded assessment.
Third year of bachelor's programme.
