Innovative Design and Simulation for a Novel Vane Pump
A novel structure of vane pump is brought forward, a new assembly relation among vane, sleeve, port plate and stator is created, mechanical bearing condition of new-type vane is preferable than traditional vane, vane is kept clearance with stator all the time as long as dimensions of those parts are reasonable. Modal analysis and optimized design for vane is made with finite element analysis software ANSYS. By simulating analysis for pump, simulation result shows that this novel vane pump is feasible. Compared with traditional pump, wear and vibration of novel vane pump can be reduced, volumetric efficiency of pump can be enhanced remarkably, the novel vane pump has certain application value.
