Hydraulic Fluid Power today is used by several large and important industries. As is the case with any instance of power transfer, hydraulic actuation is plagued by several sources of inefficiencies, some by design and some by nature. The use of throttling to regulate actuation rate is often revealed to be a major source of energy loss in hydraulic systems. This thesis addresses this energy loss inducing mechanism of speed control through the development of an improved hydraulic actuation system.
