Hydraulic Power System Analysis
by Arthur Akers

Hydraulic Power System Analysis demonstrates modern computer-aided analytical techniques used to model nonlinear, dynamic fluid power systems.

Features:

  • Treats fluid power system modeling at a level ideally suited to design engineers with limited knowledge of fluid power
  • Emphasizes a clear division between steady state and dynamic modeling
  • Reviews the basic features of automatic control theory and introduces noise reduction for fluid power systems
  • Discusses bulk modulus related to entrained air and flexible hoses, explaining adverse dynamic effects
  • Combines dynamic analysis of flow allocation and explores the dynamics involved in flow division in the circuit
