Dynamic Property Simulations of Hydraulic Cylinder Based on Simulink


Article Preview

The paper established the mathematical model of plunger-type hydraulic cylinder, founded the simulation model in the SIMULINK environment and solved its unit-step response, gave the hydraulic cylinder design parameter and the medium character’s influence to its unit-step response, summarized the intrinsic relations between parameters and the time domain index, provided the theory basis to optimize the hydraulic cylinder dynamic property. Conducting the research of the hydraulic cylinder system using SIMULINK has the outstanding characters such as the simple programming, the direct-viewing modeling, the highly effective simulation, it may reduce the design cycle greatly, reduce the design cost, enhance the product performance. The research conducted suggests this method may promote to the research of all the hydraulic package and hydraulic system.
