Principles Of Hydraulic Power
Hydraulic: Greek word for water ,originally meant the study of
.physical behavior of water at rest and in motion
1-Lighter weight.
2-Ease of installation.
3-Simplification of inspection.
.4-Minimum maintenance requirement
Operation are almost 100%efficient-5
Negligible loss due to fluid friction -6
Static fluid pressure
Hydrostatic paradox The pressure exerted by a column of
liquid is determined by the height of the column and is
independent of its volume or shape
Using a hand pump, pressure of 100 PSI has been built up in -
a hydraulic system. The hand pump piston is 1 inch in
diameter. A 1/2-inch line connects the hand pump to an
actuating cylinder 2 inches in diameter. What is the
pressure in the line between the hand pump and the
?actuator
A: 100 PSI. B: 150 PSI. C: 200
.PSI
A given pressure may be raised
by raising the container

## Neither the shape nor the volume of the container affects

the pressure, only the height of the column has any effect
Pascal’s law -
Pressure Exerted on a fluid in an enclosed container is transmitted
equally and undiminished to all parts of the container and acts at right
angles to the enclosing walls
Relationship between Pressure, Force and Area
Pressure = force-
Area
.Pressure: amount of force exerted on a unit of area-
Pressure is a term used to indicate the force per unit area. Pressure is usually -
.expressed in pounds per square inch
Relationship between Area, Distance and Volume
volume= area × distance _
Mechanical advantage in a hydraulic system
Two major advantages over other types of mechanical
systems
Ease with which force can be transmitted over large -1
distances
varying the size of pistons
Apply 501 lbs.

## Force (501 lbs.) =

Area (1 sq.inch) x
Pressure (501 PSI)

F = A x P

## Force (1002 lbs) =

1 square Area (2 sq.inch) x 2 square
inch area Pressure (501PSI) inch area

## A 500 lb force can overcome a 1000 lb force using

If 2 lbs. are removed from the
small cylinder:

V = A x D

Now let’s add a second large cylinder arranged
in parallel with the first.

## Will the small cylinder be able to lift both

1000 lb. weights?
Add 2 lbs. to the small cylinder.
the 6 cu.in. of fluid must be divided equally
The 501 lb weight can lift both 1000 lb weights, but:
into the two large cylinders,

6”
1.5”

## therefore, the large weights only move 1.5 inches each.

Hydraulic System Components & Design
A-Hydraulic fluid

HYDRUALIC FLUIDS
Are liquids

## Any liquid may be used as a hydraulic fluid,

but we use fluids that meet specific criteria
The major characteristics considered when
selecting satisfactory liquid
Viscosity is internal resistance to flow which-1
.increases as temperature decreases
Saybolt universal viscosimeter: is instrument-
measures the number of seconds it take for a fixed
quantity of liquid (60 cc) to flow through a small orifice
of standard length and diameter at a specific
(seconds,saybolt,universal)
The internal resistance of a fluid which tends to-
prevent it from flowing is called viscosity
what is the viscosity of hydraulic-
?fluid
The internal resistance of a fluid which tends to
.prevent it from flowing
Saybolt Viscosimeter

## Measures number of seconds

for 60cc to flow a specific
size of orifice @ a specific
temperature
-measured in seconds
Seconds, Saybolt Universal
SSU
Saybolt Viscosimeter
How the viscosimeter works
It measures how long it takes a fixed amount of
liquid (60cc) to flow through a small orifice of
.specific dimensions at a specific temperature
A multi grade oil maintains its flow across a wider
.temperature span
Flash point: is the temperature at which a liquid gives off vapor-2
in sufficient quantity to ignite momentarily (flash) when a flame
.is applied
Fire point: is the temperature at which a substance gives off-3
vapor in sufficient quantity to ignite and continue to burn when
.exposed to spark or flame
Chemical Stability: is the ability of the liquid to resist oxidation-4
.and deterioration for long periods
Where can information be obtained about the compatibility-
of fire-resistant hydraulic fluid with aircraft materials?

Double acting actuator and two- way selector valve
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
Engine driven pump and pump-control valve
It is similar to the two –way system driven by a hand pump .It
incorporates a bypass valve (pump-control valve) to unload the pump
when it is not being used to power the actuator

A-unpressurized (used on low altitude)
B-pressurized….methods by aspirator (30-35psi)
by bleed air (40-45psi),
by HYD pressure (60psi)
what is the main purpose of a pressurized reservoir in a hydraulic
.system is to Prevent hydraulic pump cavitations
by bleed air (40-45psi)
Bleed air is used to pressurized hydraulic reservoirs on turbine-powered
aircraft
by HYD pressure (60psi)
The pressure of the hydraulic system can be used to
pressurized the reservoir. A pressure – reduction
mechanism is used to lower the high system pressure to a
.low pressure suitable for the reservoir
Bellows rubber: to prevent captivate when-
.aircraft makes inverted maneuvers

## Note: some HYD reservoir on jet aircraft

??pressurized (why)
to get positive feed of fluid to the pump and to
get adequate supply of fluid free from
foaming
Note: the main purpose of a pressurized
reservoir in a hydraulic system is to
.Prevent hydraulic pump cavitations
Note: Hydraulic fluid reservoirs are
sometimes designed with a standpipe in
one of the outlet ports in order to assure
emergency supply of fluid. The outlet port
with the standpipe in it furnishes fluid to
the: ……..normal system power pump

## Note: Many hydraulic reservoirs contain a

small quantity of fluid which is not available
to the main system pump. This fluid is
retained to supply fluid to the auxiliary
pump
Before removing the filler cap of a -
,pressurized hydraulic reservoir
A: relieve the hydraulic system pressure. relieve
.the air pressure

## What is the main purpose of a pressurized -

?reservoir in a hydraulic system
.Prevent hydraulic pump cavitation

## If fluid is added to a non-pressurized -

reservoir in a constant-pressure hydraulic
,system while the system is pressurized
the fluid level will increase when system
.pressure is reduced
:Filter -2
.)to keep the system clean from contamination(
a-Paper element
b-Metallic element
Note : By pass valve: that part of the filter open to relief
excess pressure when the pressure goes beyond a certain
level
-: The three types of filters are
a- Micronics-type filter
b- Two-stage type filter
c- Cuno-type filter
Hydraulic fluid filtering elements constructed of porous -
paper are normally
discarded at regular intervals and replaced with new filtering
.elements
A filter incorporating specially treated cellulose paper is
identified as a
.Micronic filter
a- Micronics-type filter
A Micronic-type filter uses a folded paper element to increase
the effective area of the filtering medium
b- Two-stage type filter
Allow the use of an extremely fine element at low flow rate
without causing an excessive pressure drop
c- Cuno-type filter
The cuno filter is sturdy enough to be used on the pressure
side of the system. A handle can be turned to clean the
disks .Contamination then fall to the bottom of the filter
where they can be removed

power pump * constant displacement pump-
variable displacement pump *
Constant displacement pump: to give specific **
.volume of fluid at constant speed
Almost all engine-constant driven pumps have a -
shear section in their drive coupling. If the
pressure relief devices should fail, or if the pump
should seize, the shaft will shear and prevent the
.pump being further damaged
A hydraulic pump is a constant-displacement type if
.it delivers a uniform rate of fluid flow
Types of Constant displacement pump*
A-gear pump: (gear beside gear attached by flange in
case used in medium pressure)
Case pressure: low pressure maintained inside the two gears of pump which -
builds up about (15 psi) in event of pump rather than allowing air to be drown
.damaging fluid seal will be forced out of
.Note: gear mounted tight together to *minimize wear*
B-gerotor Pump (six teeth inside seven teeth
of gear, moving by engine that used in
medium pressure)
C- piston pump….high pressure hydraulic systems
often use a fixed angle piston –type pump
have (7-9) piston at proper angle, when pump rotates half
.turn some piston move from top to bottom and vise versa
A hydraulic pump is a constant-displacement type if it delivers a
uniform rate of fluid flow
What is one advantage of piston-type hydraulic motors over -
?electric motors
.There is no fire hazard if the motor is stalled
D-vane pump: gives a large a mount of fluid under low
.pressure
A variable displacement hydraulic pump:**
whose output may be varied by the pressure on the system. For high
pressure applications, this is usually done by varying the stroke, either
actual or effective, of a piston type pump
Most variable displacement hydraulic pumps of current design -
.contain a built-in means of system pressure regulation
If all regulating and relief valves fail, the shaft will-
shear and keep the pump from being more
.seriously damaged

An air leak in the inlet side of a hydraulic pump will cause it -
.to chatter as it alternately gets air and then hydraulic fluid

## Chattering of the hydraulic pump during operation is an -

indication
that air is entering the pump

## What condition would most likely cause excessive -

fluctuation of the pressure gauge when the hydraulic pump
?is operating

## A hydraulic motor converts fluid pressure to rotary motion -

Aircraft landing gear that are retracted and-
lowered with an electric motor use a series-
wound motor because of its high starting
torque and a split-field motor to both raise
.and lower the gear
An electric motor used to raise and lower a -
landing gear would most likely be a
.split field series-wound motor

.)open & close center valve( )direct the flow of fluid(
The most commonly used selector valve in an-
aircraft hydraulic system is
a- four-port,
.b-closed-center selector valve
Select the valve used in a hydraulic system that -
directs pressurized fluid to one end of an
actuating cylinder and simultaneously directs
.return fluid to the reservoir from the other end
Selector valve
The component in the hydraulic system that is -
used to direct the flow of fluid is the selector
.valve
What type of selector valve is one of the -
most commonly used in hydraulic systems
to provide for simultaneous flow of fluid into
?and out of a connected actuating unit
.Four-port, closed-center valve
.check valve: to allow the fluid in one direction-2
. ball type-1
. cone type-2
. swing type-3
orifice type (used on landing gear)-4
Orifice check valves are used where it is desired that flow is
unrestricted in one direction, but restricted in the other
.Landing gear systems are often use these so that the gear
doesn't extend too rapidly
The purpose of an orifice check valve is to-

.restrict flow in one direction and allow free flow in the other
Which allows free fluid flow in one direction -
?and no fluid flow in the other direction
Check valve
What type of valve in an aircraft hydraulic -
system permits fluid to flow freely in one
direction, but restricts the rate at which fluid
?is allowed to flow in the other direction
.Orifice check valve .
The purpose of restrictors in hydraulic -
systems is to
control the rate of movement of hydraulically
.operated mechanisms
:sequence valve-3
to allow some parts in the system to work in correct position or correct
.sequence that operated by mechanical
Permit actuation only when specific prior events have occurred*
The unit which causes one hydraulic operation to follow another in a*
. definite order
The unit which causes one hydraulic operation to follow -
another in a definite order is called a sequence valve
priority valve: the same as a sequence valve-4
.but operated by hydraulic
Quick disconnect valve-5
Line-disconnect valves…used to prevent the loss of fluid when units are removed
Quick disconnect valves are designed to be closed when the two lines are
disconnected and open when the two lines have been fully joined
Quick-disconnect couplings in hydraulic systems provide a means of -
quickly connecting and disconnecting hydraulic lines without loss of fluid or
.entrance of air into the system
:fuse HYD valve-6

pressure drops
.have leak in the system.2
Note: fuse HYD operates on the principle of*
.differential in the input pressure
Designed to remain open to allow normal fluid flow*
in the line also close if the fluid flow increases
above an established rate

## Some hydraulic systems incorporate a device which

is designed to remain open to allow a normal fluid
flow in the line, but closed if the fluid flow
increases above an established rate. This device
.is generally referred to as a hydraulic fuse
b- pressure control valve
:Relief valve-1
.to relief excessive pressure from the system**
Thermal relief valves: are set to relive a pressure higher than any of -
other valve, so they will not interfere with normal system operation or
.protection
to maintain pressure within a specified range
Unloading valve (regulator) must be temporarily set to a pressure above that of-
.the relief valve being set, or its action must be eliminated in some other way
The purpose of the pressure regulator in a -
hydraulic system is to
maintain system operating pressure within a
.predetermined range and to unload the pump
If it is necessary to adjust several pressure -
regulating valves in a hydraulic system, what
particular sequence, if any, should be followed?
Units with the highest pressure settings are
engine-driven hydraulic pumps to
.relieve the pump pressure
The purpose of a hydraulic pressure regulator is to -
prevent the system pressure from rising above a
.predetermined amount due to thermal expansion
Reducer valve: used to lower the pressure in-3

A flap overload valve: prevents the flaps-4
from being lowered at airspeeds which

## The primary function of the flap overload -

valve is to prevent the flaps from being
lowered at airspeeds which would impose
:Accumulator-5
to hold the hydraulic under pressure, which divided into two chamber
.(air or nitrogen & hydraulic )
Types: (according separated chamber)*
Generally, the first step in removing an accumulator -
.from an aircraft is to relieve system pressure
How is the air in a hydraulic accumulator prevented from
?entering the fluid system
By physically separating the air chamber from the oil
.chamber with a flexible or movable separator
FUNCTION OF THE ACCUMULATOR
.Dampen pressure surges.1
Supplement the system pump when demand is beyond .2
.the pump’s capacity
Store power for limited operation of components if the .3

HYD cylinder, the open side of the seal should
.face the direction of fluid pressure
TWO -WAY SEALS
O-ring (double action)
:Note*
O-ring must but in the groove about 10%wider than the width of seal & -
.deep enough between the bottom of the groove
An O-ring of the appropriate size can withstand pressure up to about -
1500 PSI
BACKUP RINGS
Used to prevent O-ring from extruding under high pressure
Back up ring should be used to avoid high pressure
.damaging the seal
TYPES OF BACKUP
.Backup rings are scarfed in a certain direction
Care must be taken to install them as in (A) so that when pressure is applied as
in ( C ) ,the ring will provide smooth surface on both sides

## If installed as in (B) ,the O ring can be damaged**

Air is removed from most hydraulic systems by cycling the-
components through several operating cycles (double
.acting) , a single acting (brake) by bleeding

## The removal of air from an aircraft hydraulic system is -

generally accomplished
by operating the various hydraulic components through
.several cycles

## Extrusion of an O-ring seal is prevented in a high-pressure -

system by the use of

Aircraft pneumatic system components -
Relief valves :is used to relief any excessive air-1
pressure inside system (prevent damage)
Relief valves are damage-preventing units that are
,preset and safetied
they protect the system from
excessive pressure buildup
that can be caused by thermal
expansion or by a compressor
.power system malfunction
Relief valves are used in
pneumatic systems as
.damage-preventing units
Pneumatic systems utilize
.relief valves
Control valves: is used to control amount of air pressure-2
inside air system
Absolute pressure regulator: is regulated the air pressure at
the inlet to the compressor which provides a stabilized
source of air for the compressor
What function does the absolute pressure regulator -
perform in the pneumatic power system? Regulates the
compressor inlet air to provide a stabilized source of air for
.the compressor
Check valves : is used to-3
… allow air flow in one direction
used in both hydraulic and
pneumatic system
Restrictor : is used to restrict air flow, reduce-4
rate of air flow
A variable orifice enables the variable pneumatic restrictor to be set for a
wide range of airflow ,from the maximum provided by the air source
down to no flow at all
Filters: is used to clean air from dirt-5
Micronic filter…consist of replaceable cartridge and relief valve-1
screen type filter…permanent wire screen, Equipped with a -2
scraper used to clean the wire screen
Disscant /moisture separator-6
Is used to dry the moisture by heating them
A moisture separator that incorporates engine--
driven compressor. That separates the moisture
from the compressed air before the air is allowed
.to expand in the system
An aircraft pneumatic system, which incorporates -
an engine-driven multistage reciprocating
compressor, also requires
.a moisture separator
In a typical high-pressure pneumatic system, if the -
moisture separator does not vent accumulated
water when the compressor shuts down, a likely
.cause is a malfunctioning solenoid dump valve
Shuttle valve: to direct either normal hydraulic system pressure or-7
.emergency air pressure into landing gear or brake actuator
The hydraulic component that automatically directs fluid from either the-
normal source or an emergency source to an actuating cylinder is
called a
.shuttle valve
The air that is expended and no longer needed when an actuating unit is -
operated in a pneumatic system is
..exhausted or dumped, usually overboard
