Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientific


Earlier research demonstrated that a pump-controlled hydraulic system combines the best properties of traditional hydraulics and electric intelligence. Thus, the new system has been proposed as a replacement for conventional valve-controlled systems, to improve the energy efficiency in non-road mobile machinery in particular. One of the pump-controlled systems can be realized via direct control of hydraulic pump/motor by varying speed of prime mover. Electric motor (EM) as a prime mover attract with higher efficiency (more than 90%) and a wide range of speed regulation. These advantages allow to improve the system efficiency and decrease the energy consumption in electric and hybrid non-road mobile machinery. Further EM's efficiency improvement can be achieved by using vector control systems, which provide rotor magnetic flux control proportionally to the shaft's speed. Considering all vector control’s benefits (high accuracy of speed control, smooth~start and smooth rotation of the motor in the entire frequency range, quick response to load changes, increased control range and accuracy of regulation), the electro-hydraulic systems and influence of electric part on hydraulic one is not investigated widely. Therefore, in this paper Field Oriented Control (FOC) is analyzed as One of the most perspective vector control systems for electro-hydraulic actuator application with a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine (PMSM) as a prime mover. In~this study, Direct-driven hydraulics (DDH) was considered as a study case. A detailed model of the PMSM control system with DDH was built in MATLAB/Simulink. The behavior of the DDH system was investigated by transient processes analysis of EM, pump, and cylinder in the normal and failure modes. The system demonstrates a difference between reference and simulated speed about 0.33% and 11.75% of average torque fluctuations. The behavior of the system in failure mode demonstrated multiple excesses of rated parameters.
