Circuit Design Training Course


This math-intensive, four-and-a-half-day course covers how to select and properly size components used in industrial hydraulic circuits. It will not cover mobile applications. Students will learn the correct methods for properly sizing components selected, not relying on “rules of thumb” to optimize the energy use within a system. Basic math and physics are used to calculate performance requirements for applications.
