Influence from the cross-angle on piston forces and bending moments in variable hydraulic piston pumps
2003 (English)Report (Other academic)
By implementing an additional incline (cross-angle) of the swash plate of an axial piston pump, in the direction perpendicular to the traditional displacement direction, the piston dead-centre points will move as the displacement angle varies. The cross-angle is fixed and normally very small (1-4°). If designed correctly, the movement of the dead-centre points achieved by using a cross-angle coincides with the dead centres desired for optimal cylinder pre-compression and decompression for all displacement angles. It has in earlier works been described how the cross-angle enables minimisation of discharge and inlet peak-to-peak flow ripple for all displacement angles simultaneously. In this paper, it is also investigated how the piston forces and the bending moments are influenced.
The cross-angle is designed using simulation-based multi-objective optimisation. It is investigated how objective functions can be made up from peak-to-peak values as well as from frequency spectrum of signals. The trade-offs between the conflicting objectives considered are elucidated by using the concept of Pareto optimality. The result from such a Pareto optimisation is not one optimal solution, but a set of optimal solutions. With the technique presented, it is thus possible to investigate an optimal value for the cross-angle that the most beneficial impact on all factors that influence the noise level of the pump.
