Reduced Power Consumption in Power Steering, Active Chassis and Transmission Systems (7th LuK Symposium 2002)
Hydraulic systems are used in passenger cars to improve their safety and comfort. The wellknown benefits include high power density, a low power-to-weight ratio and excellent dynamics. Hydraulic systems are often cited, however, as consuming more power in comparison to controlled electric drives, thus increasing fuel consumption. But by selecting the right type of pump in conjunction with demand based control, the power consumption associated with pumps can be significantly reduced.
