## Description

Do you want to learn about hydraulic system components in more detail? You want to know how do the various pumps and motors function? This is the right course for you! After making my first course on Udemy Hydraulics 101 I decided to start working on a sequel which will be more detailed and which will go in depth into how do the components in hydraulic systems work. My first course was based on the basic principles, what is the hydraulic system made out of, how do we control the power that goes into a hydraulic system but in this course you will learn how does the pump actually pump the fluid, how does the motor take the fluid flow power and convert it to mechanical power and how we control the fluid with valves and other control components.
The course is structured so every section is about a certain group of components, starting with pumps. On the end of each section, there is a quiz which will help you test your gained knowledge. In the first and last section there are 2 quizzes because the sections on hydraulic pumps and valves are long and have a lot of information in them.

The sections are:

1. Positive displacement pumps – in which you will learn in depth how various types of hydraulic pumps work

2. Parameters of positive displacement pumps – in which you will learn about the parameters of hydraulic pumps and how they are calculated.

3. Hydraulic motors – in which you will learn in depth how various types of hydraulic motors work

4. Parameters of hydraulic motors – in which you will learn about the parameters of hydraulic motors and how they are calculated.

5. Hydraulic cylinders – in which you will learn about types of hydraulic cylinders, how they work in depth and how their parameters are calculated.

6. Hydraulic circuits – in which you will learn about the ins and outs of an hydraulic circuits and how they operate.

7. Hydraulic valves and control components – in which you will learn how are the hydraulic systems controlled and all of the valves that help us in controlling the system.

The course is long and it has a lot of information in it, it requires a lot of attention and in some lessons (like the ones we calculate the parameters of gear and axial pistons and motors) I recommend taking a pen and paper and following the mathematical steps I do.
