Displacement vs Flow Control in IC Engines Lubricating Pumps 2004-01-1602

Scope of this work is to analyse potentials in terms of efficiency of two pump units belonging to two families: the first intervening on the maximum volume generated by variable volume chambers (e.g. a vane pump where eccentricity is varied), the second that changes the quantity of fluid being sucked or delivered (e.g. a gear pump with variable timing). In more detail the comparison will be established between a vane pump where displacement is varied through eccentricity and an internal gear pump of Gerotor type where flow rate is controlled through a rotating sector that alters the effective geometry of kidney ports. A detailed simulation of the two solutions brings to evidence the advantages of the first approach with respect to the second as confirmed by experimental investigations.
