Fluid power systems are manufactured by many organizations for a very wide range of applications, embodying different arrangements of components to fulfill a given task. Hydraulic components are manufactured to provide the control functions required for the operation of a wide range of systems and applications.

This second edition is structured to give an understanding of:

• Basic types of components, their operational principles and the estimation of their performance in a variety of applications.

• A resume of the flow processes that occur in hydraulic components.

• A review of the modeling process for the efficiency of pumps and motors.

This new edition also includes a complete analysis for estimating the mechanical loss in a typical hydraulic motor; how circuits can be arranged using available components to provide a range of functional system outputs, including the analysis and design of closed loop control systems and some applications; a description of the use of international standards in the design and management of hydraulic systems; and extensive analysis of hydraulic circuits for different types of hydrostatic power transmission systems and their application.

Peter Chapple received a BSc in mechanical engineering from Bristol University, 1960, an MSc from Princeton University in 1962, and a PhD from Bath University Fluid Power Centre in 1991. From 1960 he was a systems engineer on the Harrier aircraft development and later he held the position of technical director at Staffa Motors. As part-time professor in fluid power in Norway he was involved in tests on two wind turbines using hydrostatic systems to transfer the turbine power. He is a group convener in ISO and also chairman of a BFPA technical committee.
