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 Four-Quadrant Multi-Fluid Pump/Motor project, which was presented by James Marschand on the August 23 CCEFP Webcast.

Project Summary: This project has focused on the design and simulation of digital pumps and motors for multi-fluid operation as well as evaluation of their feasibility. It has built upon existing technology and research by working toward a novel mechanical control for digital pumps and motors in pursuit of making this technology approach more feasible.
