Function of the LSC system explained by a simplified schematic with three functions
Fig. 1: All three spools are in neutral position, engine is on.
Stand by pressure of the HPR pump is in front of the three spools. Theoretically the
pressure under this condition would correspond to the spring in the load sensing regulator
(e.g. »p= 20 bar).
The stand by pressure that really ensues is higher, due to the backlash forces of the pump
(some 30 bar, depending on the spring setting).
Fig. 2: Only the function 1 spool is opened.
Compensator 1 opens up completely, and function 1 pressure p1 is signalled to the LSC
control via LS line and LS connection port. At the metering orifice of spool 1 the LS control
maintains a

»p that correspondens to the spring setting of the LS control (e.g. »p=20 bar).
^ A
Q=

∗ ∆p

So the pump flow Q demanded in terms of orifice area A stays always the same, even though
the function pressure may vary.

Fig. 3: In addition to high load function 1, low load function 2 is activated.
The pressure difference between function 1 and 2 pushes the shuttle to the opposite side.
As a result pressure of function 1 (= LS pressure) is now available on the left hand side of the
compensator of function 2. Hence compensator 2 maintains at the metering orifice of spool 2
the same »p as at metering orifice 1. The residual difference between pressure of function 1
and 2 is throttled off by compensator 2.
Important:
Pressure fluctuations at function 1 (LS pressure) are corrected by the LS control of the pump;
Pressure fluctuations at function 2 are corrected by compensator 2.
Qges. = Q1 + Q2
Qges. ^= (A1∗ ∆ p ) + (A2 ∗
Qges. ^= (A1 + A2)∗ ∆ p

∆p )

This equation applies as long as the pump can meet the flow demand by A1 and A2.
If e.g. the power limiter reduces flow while cross section A = A1 + A2 remains unchanged
drop to a smaller value.

»p will

The configuration of fig. 3 shows that »pdrops by the same amaunt at each orifice. This is why
the individual flows change proportionally - the great advantage of the LSC system.
Should pressure at function 2 rise over that of function 1, then function 2 becomes leader function,
and now it is its pressure that is signalled to the LS control.
In the case of three functions and more the procedure is still the same. At all spools it is the same

»pwhich has to be kept stable.
