The manual provides an introduction to hydraulic power systems, listing the advantages and disadvantages. It then covers the various types of pumps for hydraulic power generation, with the advantages and disadvantages of each type. It next covers power control systems and valves, hydraulic motors, filters, reservoirs and finally the factors to consider when selecting the proper type of hydraulic oil for the systems. The summary provides a brief review and at the same time can be used as a check list of where to look for problems involving contamination, cavitation and heat in both old and new systems.
