TL;DR: In this article, a parameterized elasto-hydrodynamic (EHD) lubrication model of the piston/cylinder tribopair in the hydraulic axial piston pump (SHAPP) is originally established.
Abstract: Seawater hydraulic axial piston pump (SHAPP) is a critical power component in underwater operating systems. A parameterized elasto-hydrodynamic (EHD) lubrication model of the piston/cylinder tribopair in the SHAPP is originally established, which considers the elasto-hydrodynamic behavior, viscosity temperature effect and deep-sea environmental pressure. The deformation of piston bush, bearing mechanism and energy loss characteristics of the water film under different operating conditions are discussed. The results show that the deformation of piston bush made of polyetheretherketone (PEEK) is in micron-scale under water film and deep-sea pressure, which could increase the leakage and viscous friction power loss of piston/cylinder tribopair. In deep-sea environment, the leakage and viscous friction power loss calculated by EHD are always greater than those calculated by hydrodynamic (HD), and increase with the increase of working pressure, shaft speed, gap size, sea depth and piston bush thickness. Besides, the increase of sea surface temperature could increase the leakage and decrease the viscous friction power loss of the piston/cylinder tribopair, respectively. Finally, design instructions to optimize the piston/cylinder tribopair are presented, therefore the proposed methodology can be used as a designing tool for SHAPP.

TL;DR: In this paper, an integrated torque model for a swash-plate-type seawater hydraulic axial piston motor with symmetrical precompression angles has been developed, which consists of a torque submodel and a dynamic pressure sub-model.
Abstract: Seawater hydraulic axial piston motor is an important and elemental component in underwater tool system. The torque characteristics for a swash-plate-type seawater hydraulic axial piston motor is investigated, and an integrated torque model for the motor with symmetrical pre-compression angles has been developed, which consists of a torque sub-model and a dynamic pressure sub-model. Numerical simulations have been carried out to examine the effects of (a) pre-compression angle, (b) relief-groove obliquity, (c) motor speed, (d) piston chamber dead volume, (e) friction on the dynamic pressure and the output torque characteristics. The results indicate that the pre-compression angle, the friction coefficient, and the clearance between cylinder bore/piston have significant impact on the torque characteristics. The test verification has been undertaken with a five piston water hydraulic motor. This research contributes to the mechanism of output-torque fluctuation in a swash-plate-type seawater hydraulic axial piston motor, as well as the investigation of the torque transition phenomenon owing to the pre-compression angle. The research has laid the foundation for the development and improvement of the seawater hydraulic axial piston motor in underwater tool system.

TL;DR: The obtained results prove the excellence of the proposed method in predicting the noise of APP considering four different valve seat materials and five speed levels, and six system pressures.
Abstract: In this paper, an alternative method to predict the noise of a submersible Axial Piston Pump (APP) for different valve seat materials is presented. The proposed method is composed of an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model trained using experimental data and integrated with a hybrid algorithm consists of Cat Swarm Optimization (CSO) and Firefly Algorithm (FA) algorithms. The hybrid CSFA algorithm is used as a subroutine in the ANN model to estimate the ANN weights. The FA is used as local operator to improve the exploitation ability of CSO. The obtained results prove the excellence of the proposed method in predicting the noise of APP considering four different valve seat materials (Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), Polyetheretherketone (PEEK), Aliphatic polyamides (NYLON), and stainless steel (316 L)), five speed levels, and six system pressures. Moreover, the effects of different mechanical properties of the valve seat materials as well as operating conditions (speed and system pressure) have been investigated.
TL;DR: In this article, a review of the current challenges of high-speed EHA pumps is presented, including cavitation, flow and pressure ripples, tilting motion of rotating group and heat problem.
Abstract: The continued development of electro-hydrostatic actuators (EHAs) in aerospace applications has put forward an increasing demand upon EHA pumps for their high power density. Besides raising the delivery pressure, increasing the rotational speed is another effective way to achieve high power density of the pump, especially when the delivery pressure is limited by the strength of materials. However, high-speed operating conditions can lead to several challenges to the pump design. This paper reviews the current challenges including the cavitation, flow and pressure ripples, tilting motion of rotating group and heat problem, associated with a high-speed rotation. In addition, potential solutions to the challenges are summarized, and their advantages and limitations are analyzed in detail. Finally, future research trends in EHA pumps are suggested. It is hoped that this review can provide a full understanding of the speed limitations for EHA pumps and offer possible solutions to overcome them.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors review the research on the friction mechanism and the development of a new burgeoning technique named superlubricity, which has been demonstrated as an attractive way to achieve ultralow friction and wear with almost no energy dissipation.
Abstract: Friction is a phenomenon that exists extensively in nature and industry; it has proven necessary in daily life and beneficial in energy scavenging but is also alleged to be the main cause of wear failures and energy consumption. Therefore, scientists have long worked on the origin of friction, trying in some instances to verify the possibility of achieving an absolute friction-free state, and rapid progress has been made in recent decades. In this article, we review the research on the friction mechanism and the development of a new burgeoning technique named “superlubricity”, which has been demonstrated as an attractive way to achieve ultralow friction and wear with almost no energy dissipation. It is estimated that the future application of superlubricity could result in an economic benefit of trillions of US dollars annually worldwide, as well as having great energy saving potential.

Abstract: A dynamic model with four masses and 19 degree of freedoms is proposed to investigate the vibration response characteristics of an axial piston pump. In the model, main parts are simplified by multiple lumped mass points connected with spring-damper elements. Experimental investigation is performed, and the discharge dynamic pressures and vibrations are measured to validate the dynamic model. Using the constructed model, influences of operating conditions (the discharge pressure, the rotational speed, and the displacement angle), and stiffness and damping coefficients between different contacting surfaces (the cylinder and valve plate, the piston and cylinder bore, and the slipper and swash plate) on the amplitude-frequency vibration responses and phase trajectory plots are analyzed. The findings showed that the vibration responses are significantly affected by the operating conditions, and are also considerably affected by the stiffness and damping coefficients. The rotational speed determines the fundamental frequency and its harmonics, and most of the harmonic vibration responses increase with increasing discharge pressure and displacement angle. The shape and the area defined by the phase trajectory are significantly changed by the operating conditions. The complex irregular motion might be changed into less irregular motion with decreasing discharge pressure, rotational speed and displacement angle.
TL;DR: Wang et al. as mentioned in this paper employed Bayesian optimization (BO) for adaptive HP learning, and an improved convolutional neural network (CNN) was established for fault feature extraction and classification in a hydraulic piston pump.
Abstract: As an essential part of hydraulic transmission systems, hydraulic piston pumps have a significant role in many state-of-the-art industries. Thus, it is important to implement accurate and effective fault diagnosis of hydraulic piston pumps. Owing to the heavy reliance of shallow machine learning models on the expertise and experience of engineers, fault diagnosis based on deep models has attracted significant attention from academia and industry. To construct a deep model with good performance, it is necessary and challenging to tune the hyperparameters (HPs). Since many existing methods focus on manual tuning and use common search algorithms, it is meaningful to explore more intelligent algorithms that can automatically optimize the HPs. In this paper, Bayesian optimization (BO) is employed for adaptive HP learning, and an improved convolutional neural network (CNN) is established for fault feature extraction and classification in a hydraulic piston pump. First, acoustic signals are transformed into time–frequency distributions by a continuous wavelet transform. Second, a preliminary CNN model is built by setting initial HPs. The range of each HP to be optimized is identified. Third, BO is employed to select the optimal combination of HPs. An improved model called CNN-BO is constructed. Finally, the diagnostic efficiency of CNN-BO is analyzed using a confusion matrix and t-distributed stochastic neighbor embedding. The classification performance of different models is compared. It is found that CNN-BO has a higher accuracy and better robustness in fault diagnosis for a hydraulic piston pump. This research will provide a basis for ensuring the reliability and safety of the hydraulic pump.
