Intended learning outcomes

The course is intended to give a broad knowledge in hydraulic system design. After the course, the student should:

  • be able to analyze and discuss fluid power systems in terms of performance, power consumption, controllability and dynamic properties.
  • be able to model and implement dynamic analyses of fluid power systems.
  • be able to create and apply calculation basis for component selection and system design.
  • be able to explain component functions and component characteristics in the field of fluid power.
  • be able to consider environmental aspects and ergonomically suitable solutions.
  • conduct laboratory experiments and present experiments and results in writing.
  • be able to incorporate and account for research literature in relevant journals.

Course content

Hydraulic machines: Design of different types of pumps and motors. Analyses of losses and efficiency models. Flow pulsations from hydraulic machines. Control actuators for variable displacement machines. Dynamic properties of hydraulic machines. Simulation and optimization of fluid power pumps/motors.

Transmission systems: Mobile and industrial applications. Completely hydraulic and hydro mechanical divided types of transmissions - principles of automatic control and dynamic characteristics. Servo systems for control of shaft speed and torque. Simulation of transmission drive systems.

Valve-controlled systems: Steady state and dynamic properties of pressure and flow control valves. Mobile and industrial applications. Open and closed systems. Load sensing hydraulic systems. Simuation of valve-controlled systems.

About teaching and examination language

The teaching language is presented in the Overview tab for each course. The examination language relates to the teaching language as follows: 

  • If teaching language is Swedish, the course as a whole or in large parts, is taught in Swedish. Please note that although teaching language is Swedish, parts of the course could be given in English. Examination language is Swedish. 
  • If teaching language is Swedish/English, the course as a whole will be taught in English if students without prior knowledge of the Swedish language participate. Examination language is Swedish or English (depending on teaching language). 
  • If teaching language is English, the course as a whole is taught in English. Examination language is English. 

Other

The course is conducted in a manner where both men's and women's experience and knowledge are made visible and developed. 

The planning and implementation of a course should correspond to the course syllabus. The course evaluation should therefore be conducted with the course syllabus as a starting point.
