Fluid Power Engineering Laboratory


Experiments Performed:

Fluid power plays an important role in industry. Uses of fluid power include machine tools, off-road vehicles, material testing systems etc. One objective of this course is to introduce students to this exciting field through hands on exercises of connecting up fluid power circuits and observing how they operate. The second objective of the course is to provide students with hands on experience in designing and implementing control systems for real systems.
