Working Parameters Selection of Bladder-Type Accumulator under the Different Conditions


Article Preview

Currently there is a lot of material presented on the selection of different conditions and specific formula in order to select accumulator parameters. Yet these formulas are calculated in different degree of approximation and assumptions. This paper mainly considers the effect of the poly index and temperature to the working parameters in the charge process; and designs the software package of parameter selection of the accumulators. The key index formula is derivated, and the more accurate total volume V0 can be given trough computation. It is accurate basis for the selection of the accumulator.
