Learning outcomes
The course is focused on actuators and presents an overview of the basic principles of fluid power transmission mechanisms and examples familiar with the function of selected types of hydraulic and pneumatic actuators. The lectures include the following topics: basic concepts, and fluid properties. Energy transfer, balance of power, dissipation and heat calculation. Types of circuit elements and transducers. Properties and characteristics of the drives. Operating states and control actuators. The topics will be added as part of the calculation in the exercises, and solution laboratories? works. A necessary condition for obtaining credit is a semester of work.
