Objective of the course


Students should be given the knowledge on pipe systems, turbo machinery, pumps, water turbine systems and fans. Students will be able to dimension the pump, choosing the right pump type, understand the different water turbine construction and sizing of fans

Students will also be given knowledge of design and use of oil hydraulic power transmission systems and control systems. Students will be able to read wiring diagrams and descriptions in the instruction books and manuals. Students will also gain knowledge of modern management and regulation of hydraulic system using proportional hydraulics

The student will be able to apply relevant information for this type of work (LU-M-K-5)


Students will be able to design a system consisting of pumps, piping, supports, valves and other required elements to fulfil the power requirements stablished

Students will be able to read schematic drawings and have been given training in troubleshooting the oil hydraulic systems

Students should also be able to design oil hydraulic systems for industrial and mobile equipment

The skills will be useful in the bachelor thesis (LU-M-F-1.5)

General competences

Students can participate in product development and production systems and help in practical assessments, testing and simulation in terms of resource use, economics and security (LU-M-G-1.2).
