This Aerospace Information Report presents an overview of the application and control of fixed and variable displacement pumps with the emphasis on the controls most commonly used on variable displacement pumps. It describes various options to control the operation of hydraulic pumps in terms of controlling the pump output pressure and/or flow and assisting in the selection of the pump.
Rationale: There is a need for a document that provides aerospace hydraulic system and pump designers the various options for controlling the operation of hydraulic pumps, thereby helping in the selection of the most suitable pump for their systems. This document satisfies this need.
