Unformatted text preview: Closed-Center with Fixed Displacement Pump and Accumulator Closed-Center with Variable Displacement Pump Hydraulic Facts Mechanical-Hydraulic-Mechanical Inputs and Outputs Three types of Hydraulic Energy: Potential, Kinetic, & Heat None are created or destroyed, only converted All energy input is converted into an output, gain (work) or loss (heat) A restricted flowing liquid creates heat This also causes a pressure drop Hydraulic systems must be sealed to work Hydraulic Facts Oil takes the path of least resistance Oil is pushed into a pump, not drawn A pump does not create pressure, it creates flow. Pressure is caused by resistance to flow. These can produce the same power: High pressure & low flow Low pressure & high flow Two basic types of hydraulics: Hydrodynamics Hydrostatics...
