HANNOVER MESSE 2020,
20 - 24 April
The application areas for hydraulic systems are extensive and range from industrial, stationary use to the implementation in mobile machinery. Within this broad spectrum, the research group “Mobile & Stationary Systems” focuses on the systematic, tailored redesign or new development of hydraulic systems and architectures in an increasingly mechatronic environment.
The extension of these fluid-mechatronic drive structures by modern information technology as part of the IIoT is continuously increasing the scope for research and development projects. In this context the research for stationary systems concentrates on enhancing the systems’ durability, efficiency and service intervals as well as enabling preventative maintenance. In order for condition monitoring and preventative maintenance to be usefully implemented, new system requirements in terms of digital modeling, simplification and standardized structures arise, presenting new challenges to the group.
The wider use of real-time control hardware results in hydraulic-mechanical controllers being progressively replaced by electronic controls. The availability of smart components results in new alternative, robust and energy-efficient system concepts, which are already apparent today through the increased use of electrohydraulic direct drives.
Innovative drives have to be developed in order to meet the ever-increasing demands in terms of availability, productivity and energy efficiency. The holistic view of the system from the primary energy source to the output creates fundamentally new drive concepts. However, the need for research is not limited to the novel interconnection of hydraulic and electrical components but also includes the development of higher-level system controls.
