"Hydraulic Power Sources" provides a detailed overview of the most common hydraulic pumps used in hydraulic systems. A hydraulic pump is the power source of a hydraulic system and requires a prime mover, such as a motor or engine, in order to create fluid flow. Hydraulic pumps include positive-displacement pumps such as gear pumps, vane pumps, and piston pumps. A hydraulic power source relies on many components that work together to form a complete hydraulic system. A foundational knowledge of hydraulic pumps is essential to understanding how a hydraulic system functions. After taking this class, users will have a comprehensive understanding of hydraulic pumps and pump ratings, such as flow capacity, pressure, and efficiency.
