Transmission of Fluid Power Systems

Electric Study

Pneumatic systems are fluid power systems and they generally use air, are highly compressible, and have gaseous fluids as the medium of energy transfer. These systems are able to transmit static force (potential energy) and turn it into a moving force (kinetic energy). Let us look into how exactly force is able to be transmitted through a gas to understand how it works.

First, we must talk about forces acting upon a solid. When a solid is acted upon by some force the force in transmitted in the same direction as the force originally. An example would be when someone goes to move a chair in the office; once the chair is pushed it begins to move in the direction that was originally acted upon the chair. Transmitting force through a fluid is much different though. When a fluid is acted upon by some force, the force is then transmitted…
