MAS219 Hydraulic Components and Systems or similar.
Pump control - pressure, flow, power. Actuator control - force, speed, lowering, braking. Steady state equations for standard components. Systematic modeling - steady state. Steady state simulation. Systematic specification and design of hydraulic systems. Dynamic equations for standard components. Systematic modeling - dynamic. Dynamic simulation. Hydraulic-mechanical modeling and simulation - mechanisms, friction, traction, flexibility and suspension.
On successful completion of the course, the student should be able to
understand the basic functionality of hydraulic pumpe and actuator control
be capable of setting up steady state models of hydraulic systems
use numerical methods to simulate steady state models of hydraulic systems
be capable of setting up dynamic models of hydraulic systems
use numerical methods to simulate dynamic models of hydraulic systems
be capable of specifying and designing hydraulic systems
use models and simulation when designing hydraulically actuated mechanical systems
