• q : volumetric flow rate [m3/sec] [m 2] • p : pressure [N/m [N/m • v : volume [m3] [m ( ( ( ) ) ) The analogy between a hydraulic system and an electrical system will be used often. Just as in electrical systems, the flow rate (current) is defined to be the is time rate of change (derivative) of volume (charge):
q= d v=v dt The pressure, p, used in this chapter is the absolute pressure. You need to be absolute careful in determining whether the pressure is the absolute pressure or gage pressure gage pressure, p*. Gage pressure is the difference between the absolute pressure and and the atmospheric pressure, i.e. * p = p − patmospheric

Hydraulic actuation is attractive for applications when large power is needed while maintaining a reasonable weight. Not counting the weight of the pump and reservoir, hydraulic actuation has the edge in power-to-weight ratio compared with power- toother cost effective actuation sources. Earth moving applications (wheel loaders, excavators, mining equipment, ...) are typical examples where hydraulic actuators are used extensively. A typical motion application involves a hydraulic cylinder connected to certain mechanical linkages (inertia load). The motion of the cylinder is regulated via a valve that is used to regulate the flow rate to the cylinder. It is well known that such systems chatter during sudden stops and starts. Can you analyze the cause and propose solutions?
