COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Lectures:
Fluid power system – hydrostatic, hydrokinetic and pneumatic. Working fluids: mineral oils, synthetic oils, biodegradable and water, air. Theoretical and technical parameters of fluid power systems. Symbols and schema building rules of the fluid power system. The construction, principle of operation and characteristics of the hydraulic pumps, motors and linear actuators. Basic types and characteristics of control valves for; pressure, flow and direction control. Other hydraulic system components, as: filters, tanks, coolers, pipes and hoses, connectors, seals, measurement and controls. The hydrostatic drive and control system of typical machines. Throttle and volume control of the actuator velocity. Hydrostatic transmissions, definition, control characteristics. Fundamentals of fluid power system design. Hydrokinetic clutches and torque converters – operations characteristics.

Laboratory exercises:
Positive displacement pump characteristic testing. Pressure relief and/or flow control valve characteristics investigation. Pneumatic cylinder efficiency testing. Velocity control system by use of throttle valve. Testing of hydrokinetic clutch characteristic testing. Mobile machines hydrostatic steering system testing.
