Maximum pump displacement is

. Motor displacement is

/rev

.

a)

At full pump displacement:

Ideal motor speed = 1450rev/min x 12/120 = 145 rev/min

The loss in motor speed due to the volumetric (slip) flow loss at 200 Nm motor torque is:

145 - 138 rev/min = 7 rev/min

At half pump displacement:

Ideal motor speed = 1450 x 6/120 = 72.5 rev/min

For a 100% increase in the motor load torque the pressure will have to increase by 100%.

The loss in motor speed due to the slip flow loss at 400 Nm is:

14 rev/min as the pressure has increased by 100%

The motor speed will be = 72.5 - 14 = 58.5 rev/min

The circuit in Figure 1 is a meter-in system, which can only be used for opposing load forces. For negative (pulling) forces the circuit can be modified by placing the restrictor valve in the outlet flow from the annulus side of the actuator which is referred to as meterout control.

A pressure compensated flow control valve is shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1 Pressure compensated flow control valve.

The force from the spring on the piston of the valve in Figure 1(s) causes the spool to be fully open. This force is opposed by the pressure drop across the adjustable restrictor downstream of the spool. Consequently if the force from the pressure drop is greater than that of the spring the valve spool will be moved to the left causing the inlet restriction created by the spool position to be increased.

The valve inlet pressure, P

1

, is kept constant by the relief valve and therefore the flow through the valve will be maintained at a constant pressure drop across the downstream restrictor. In this way the flow will be controlled at a constant value should there be changes in the actuator force and hence changes in the valve outlet pressure P
