THE USE OF HYDRAULIC AUXILIARY ENERGY IN BRAKES OF COMMERCIAL VEHICLES

ANWENDUNG VON HYDRAULISCHER HILFSENERGIE IN BREMSANLAGEN FUER NUTZFAHRZEUGE

The hydraulic brake must be seen as the central point in a hydraulic installation and as the first step towards centrallised energy supply. The advantages of high pressure hydraulics are briefly discussed: higher efficiency, arbitrarily higher braking forces, higher protection against corrosion, compact construction and possibility of extensions, all of which increase the cost benefit ratio in favour of hydraulic equipment. The report reviews the use of hydraulic energy for private cars and light commercial vehicles, the state of the art, of current braking systems, discharge, storage, auxilliary force and external force systems and discusses hydraulic braking equipment, the construction of amplifier and braking valves, servo control and a cost comparison of systems using vacuum and hydraulic energy.
