THE INFLUENCE OF THERMODYNAMIC STATE OF MINERAL HYDRAULIC OIL ON FLOW RATE THROUGH RADIAL CLEARANCE AT ZERO OVERLAP INSIDE THE HYDRAULIC COMPONENTS

ABSTRACT
In control hydraulic components (servo valves, LS regulators, etc.) there is a need for precise mathematical description of fluid flow through radial clearances between the control piston and body of component at zero overlap, small valve opening and small lengths of overlap. Such a mathematical description would allow for a better dynamic analysis and stability analysis of hydraulic systems. The existing formulas in the literature do not take into account the change of the physical properties of the fluid with a change of thermodynamic state of the fluid to determine the flow rate through radial clearances in hydraulic components at zero overlap, a small opening, and a small overlap lengths, which leads to the formation of insufficiently precise mathematical models. In this paper model description of fluid flow through radial clearances at zero overlap is developed, taking into account the changes of physical properties of hydraulic fluid as a function of pressure and temperature. In addition, the experimental verification of the mathematical model is performed.
