COMPACT SATELLITE HYDRAULIC UNIT
- 1 Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Gdansk University of Technology, Poland
The article describes the design and operation of a prototype hydraulic unit. It is based on an inversed kinematics, satellite pump in which the body rotates around the shaft. The pump is placed inside the electric motor. Thanks to that the compact and low mass construction was achieved. Thanks to new commutation unit with enlarged channels, lower pressure losses were obtained. The article presents the construction and results of preliminary tests.
