Abstract [en]

Load sensing pumps in hydraulic system of wheel loaders helps in increasing the energy efficiency of wheel loaders. Present day machines have hydro mechanical load sensing system. After the advent of hydro mechanical load sensing concept, over the years, lots of research has been carried out relevant to electro hydraulic load sensing, trying to control the pump electronically. Currently, Volvo Construction Equipments (VCE) is interested in investigating the possibility of implementing electro hydraulic load sensing system in the wheel loaders. Research works has shown existence of several configurations of electro hydraulic load sensing pumps. Successful simulation results of an electro hydraulic load sensing pump configuration would provide a backing for the proposal of building and testing that configuration of electro hydraulic load sensing pump prototype.

Also, the thesis work aims in benchmarking hydraulic system simulation capabilities of AMESim and GT- Suite by simulating the existing hydro mechanical load sensing system in both in both the simulation packages.
