Challenges with Tertiary-Level Mechatronic Fluid Power

Peter Dransfield, Finn Conrad

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    As authors we take the view that mechatronics, as it relates to fluid power, has three levels which we designate as primary, secondary and tertiary. A brief review of the current status of fluid power, hydraulic and pneumatic, and of electronic control of it is presented and discussed. The focus is then on tertiary-level mechatronic fluid power and the challenges to it being applied successfully.
