Electrohydraulic Drive Systems

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Electrohydraulic Drive Systems
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Mechatronics, Master, ASPO 01.04.2020
Module code: MTM.EHA
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
2V+1U+1P (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 2
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Written exam 90 min.

Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

MTM.EHA (P231-0005) Mechatronics, Master, ASPO 01.04.2020 , semester 2, mandatory course
MST.EHA (P231-0005) Mechatronics and Sensor Technology, Master, ASPO 01.04.2016 , semester 2, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
Module coordinator:
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jochen Gessat
Lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jochen Gessat

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this submodule, students will be familiar with the architectures of electrohydraulic drive systems (e.g. valve-controlled linear and rotary drives, hydrostatic axes, variable-speed drive systems with motor pump units).
They will be able to explain the basic structure and function of the required components (pumps and motors, cylinders, electro-hydraulic valves, sensors for position/angle detection).
Students will be able to create model equations and structure diagrams of electrohydraulic drive systems.
Using predefined simulation software, students will be able to transfer the above structure diagrams into the creation of a model.
Students will be able to derive parameters for
