Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course presents the theory of hydraulic actuation, the primary components of a hydraulic system, such as pumps, motors, and cylinders, and system control components such as valves, as well as the properties of various pressure mediums, and provides training on fundamental system design and simulation. 

Intended learning outcomes *

A student that has completed the course shall:

• be able to describe different classes of actuators in mechanical systems;

• be able describe the primary components of a hydraulic system, their properties and behavior;

• be able to model the physical behavior of a hydraulic system with Matlab and Ansys;.

• be able to model a mechanical system with a controlled hydraulic actuation system with Simulink;

• be able to design a simple hydraulic system with commercially available components.
