Modeling and simulation techniques are essential tools for dynamic systems design and production. This book introduces an overview of common mathematical modeling techniques in t-domain and s-domain, various types of physical systems, and challenges of modeling them.
The book adopted lumped modeling technique, using Matlab-Simulink, to model discrete hydraulic components that can be recharacterized and used repeatedly in system models. The book isn’t intended to present a model for every hydraulic component, it rather applies the lumped modeling concept on hydraulic fluids, transmission lines, pumps, motors, cylinders, pressure relief valves, flow control valves, proportional valves, and servo valves. The book uses the component lumped models to assemble electrohydraulic cylinder position control system and electrohydraulic motor speed control as case studies.
More than 60 models are built. The book provides comprehensive explanation on how these models are structured, validated, and used for analyzing system performance. These models are available to download when you purchase the book.
The book is targeting system design engineers who oversee hydraulic control system design whether for industrial or mobile application. The book introduces conceptual methodology to build lumped models for hydraulic components and assemble them to form a system. The book is also a great resource for mechanical engineering graduate students for their research work. The book presents models for hydraulic fluids, transmission lines, pumps, motors, cylinders, pressure relief valves, flow control valves, proportional valves, and servo valves.
The book is colored and has the size of standard A4. The book is associated with a separate colored workbook. The workbook contains printed power point slides, chapter reviews and assignments. This book is the seventh in a series that the author plans to publish to offer complete and comprehensive teaching references for the fluid power industry. The book contains a total of eleven chapters distributed over 320 pages with very demonstrative figure and tables. The contents of the book are brand non-biased and intends to introduce the latest technologies related to the subject of the book.
