|Course unit contents
An introduction to the design/construction of hydraulic and pneumatic control systems (HPCS).
The transfer of fluid energy, motion and control. Control of motion (position, velocity, acceleration, force) and processes (pressure, temperature, etc.). The criteria for design of HPCS. HPCS with uniform (constant) and variable motion and load. Influential design parameters (compressibility, friction, losses, contamination and
control parameters) and design requirements. Types and structure of HPCS. Static and dynamic characteristics of HPCS. Design of controllers.
Mathematical modeling of HPCS. Design of a pump controlled hydraulic control system. Design of a valve controlled hydraulic control system. Design of pneumatic control systems. Hydraulic systems for synchronized motion of more cylinders. HS with locking of hydraulic cylinder. Complex hydraulic systems. Design of compensators and regulators of HPCS. Design of sequential controlled hydraulic and pneumatic actuators. Proportional and servo techniques. Simulation and testing of HPCS.
