Piloted Displacement Controls for ICE Lubricating Vane Pumps 2009-01-2758

The paper brings to evidence critical issues in the design of variable displacement vane pump controls for ICE lubrication. Tight packaging, high rotational speed and variable pressure setting are key aspects influencing the selection of pump geometric parameters as well as its displacement controls.
A specific layout, where the pump displacement control is carried out by two linear actuators and a two-way pilot control valve, has been analysed.
The paper focuses on the dimensioning of the front areas of the actuators considering two kinematic solutions, linear and rotational, for the external ring. Through a simulation model, validated by experimental tests, the influence of different pressure control strategies on the dimensioning has been investigated.
