We’ve written before about the fluid power research projects coming out of the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP). Ten new research projects have recently been selected for funding. One such project is the Control and Prognostic of Electro-Hydraulic Machines project, which was presented by Riccardo Bianchi on the November 15 CCEFP Webcast.

Project summary: This project has focused on investigating advanced electro-hydraulic techniques to optimize adaptive control, reduce application oscillations, and conduct hydraulic system diagnostics and prognostics under different operating conditions. It investigates both hydraulic crane and wheel loader applications for controlling oscillations that occur in those types of machinery.
