This 27-hour seminar is designed to cover the knowledge of electro-hydraulic components including solenoid operated valves, proportional valves, servo valves and amplifiers. The seminar also covers the technicalities of in-field tuning of open-loop and closed-loop electro-hydraulic systems. The state-of-the-art Universal Fluid Power Trainers are used to demonstrate the theory presented.
After completing the course, attendees will be able to:
- recognize the difference in construction, principle of operation and characteristics between ON/OFF valves, proportional valves and servo valves.
- apply real-time control technique for EH systems and perform infield tuning to adjust the system performance.
- read the basic electronic schematics of the proportional/servo valve amplifiers.
- make the best selection of the components required to build open- and closed-loop electro-hydraulic control systems.
Attendees will also earn 2.7 CEUs.
Topics covered include:
- Hydro-mechanical versus electro-hydraulic applications
- Electro-hydraulic system application
- Switching valves – construction and operation
- Switching valves – circuits for basic functions
- Proportional valves
- Servo valves
- Valve selection for an electri-hydraulic controlled actuator
- Electro-hydraulic system design considerations
- Control electronics for electro-hydraulic systems
- Electro-hydraulic valves commissioning and maintenance
Unless otherwise noted, public seminars will be held at the headquarters of MSOE's new education partner, GS Global Resources, in Mukwonago, WI.
