The course will provide a basic understanding of hydraulic power transmission systems, so that the student can perform design and analysis on simple systems. The course includes: hydraulic energy conversion and transmission, hydrostatics, hydrodynamics, energy conservation, impulse equation, loss in systems with pipes, valves / components and narrow passages. Features of components included in hydraulic systems: Engines, pumps, cylinders, control valves, tank, coolers, etc. Basic principles of control technology: Instrumentation technique. Logical controls, Regulators. System technical principles. Interface and interaction. Modeling and simulation. The course will also provide basic knowledge of various hydraulic fluids, properties and environmental factors.
Knowledge: After completing the course, the student: has basic knowledge of the properties and applications of hydraulic power systems - has knowledge of relevant terminology and design tools including simulation software - has basic knowledge of the principle structure and function of hydraulic power systems. - has knowledge of the design of hydraulic power systems based on the above. - has knowledge of component properties. - has knowledge of the environmental and social consequences of improper use of hydraulic power systems. - is familiar with regulations that deal with simple dimensioning based on standardized procedures / regulations.
Skills: After completing the course the student should be able to - plan design of simple hydraulic power systems and components. - find and apply the necessary regulations that deal with the dimensioning and construction of simple hydraulic power systems. - carry out calculations and dimensioning of hydraulic components based on performance and efficiency. - be able to design simple hydraulic power systems. - be able to create simple simulation models and simulate behavior in simple hydraulic systems. - be able to design form drawings (manual and digital) for hydraulic power systems according to international standards (ISO).
General competence: After completing the course the student should be able to - participate in the planning and implementation of multi-disiplinary engineering projects where hydraulic power systems are included - can, by means of standards and relevant regulations, document and convey written technical reports on dimensioning and effect of such systems.
