Direct drive volume control（DDVC）electro-hydraulic servo system has synthesized the advantages of high power of hydraulic system and flexible control of the motor. It also has other features such as energy saving, high efficiency, small bulk and high reliability. On the background for application to the ship steering system, DDVC electro-hydraulic servo system for the control actuator of ship is designed and the mathematic model is made and simulated with Matlab/Simulink. The steering gears closed-loop system’s simulation obtained the perfect dynamic performances; verify the correctness of the design with its control strategy. It can satisfy the ships request of boat to steering gears system and the DDVC electro-hydraulic servo system will be a extensive prospective power equipment of the control actuator of ship in future.
