Theory of Hydrostatic Machines and Hydrostatic Power Drives



Centre for Compressor Technology Seminar Series 2016

Professor Konstantin Lebedev
Associate Professor
Department for Turbines, hydraulic machines and plane engines
Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, Russia


The lecture will outline physical process of transformation of energy in hydraulic machines, classification of the machines by the principle of action and by application. It will then outline constructive schemes of hydraulic pumps and engines, key working parameters and static graphic characteristics. Some positive and negative properties of such machines will be outlined.

In addition the lecture will cover the application, definition and structure of hydraulic power drives, their hydraulic schemes and comparison including static power characteristics.
