so do the forces needed to move the flight controls … thus the need to transmit larger amount of power Air Turbine Pump 5 Hydraulic power is generated mechanically.Introduction 1 As airplanes grow in size. electrically and pneumatically 2 Hydraulic system transmits and controls power from engine to flight control actuators Pilot Inputs Electric Motorpump Ram Air Turbine Pump Hydraulic Storage/Conditioning Electric Generator Engine Pump Flight Control Actuators 3 Pilot inputs are transmitted to remote actuators and amplified 4 Pilot commands move actuators with little effort .

Introduction Hydraulics is based on the fact that liquids are incompressible. In it. . Hydraulic system is a system where liquid under pressure is used to transmit energy. An actuating cylinder converts hydraulic power to mechanical power. a hydraulic pump converts mechanical power to hydraulic power.

position and magnitude Infinitely variable rotary or linear motion control Adjustable limits / reversible direction / fast response Ability to handle multiple loads simultaneously Independently in parallel or sequenced in series Smooth.Why use Hydraulics? Effective and efficient method of power amplification Small control effort results in a large power output Precise control of load rate. vibration free power output Little impact from load variation Hydraulic fluid transmission medium Removes heat generated by internal losses Serves as lubricant to increase component life .

.Principles of Operation Governed by Pascal’s law The oil is in contact with both sides of the piston head but at different pressures. The selector valve determines to which side of the actuating cylinder the high pressure oil (red colored side) is sent. High pressure oil may be pumped into either side of the piston head.

EVOLUTION OF THE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM A basic hydraulic system consists of a supply of hydraulic fluid. an actuator. A double-acting actuator allows the actuator to be powered in both directions. A two-way valve allows selection of either side of the actuator. and a selector valve. . a pump.

emergency supply of oil. air space for expansion of the oil due to temperature changes TYPES Integral In-line HYDRAULIC POWER COMPONENTS . thermal contraction of oil Provides pressure head on the pump. a place to remove air or foam from liquid. volume changes.Reservoir FUNCTIONS Holds reserve supply oil to account for normal leakage.

Pumps FUNCTION is to move fluid through the system transmitting hydraulic power TYPES Hand pump Powered pump Example of a hand pump .

Piston pumps: move fluid by pushing it through the motion of the pistons within the pump .Powered Pumps FUNCTION Is to change mechanical horsepower to hydraulic horsepower TYPES Gear pumps: move fluid based upon the number of gear teeth and the volume spacing between gear teeth.

The oil is moved around to the other side by the action of the drive gear itself and sent through the pressure line. .Powered Pumps PRINCIPLES OF GEAR PUMPS The liquid from the reservoir is pushed between the gear teeth.

the reverse occurs and the pistons push oil out through the outlet . space between the block and the pistons increase. As the block rotates from bottom dead center. letting in more oil.Powered Pumps PRINCIPLES OF RECIPROCATING PISTON PUMP As the cylinder block rotates.
