Professional Education Seminar: Electrohydraulic Components and Systems (August Session)

A 27-hour seminar providing an overview of electro-hydraulic components and systems.

August 19, 2019

MSOE Large Red Block 55c38773881fd

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
