Relaunch: ASP - Accumulator Simulation Program
Do you want to size an accumulator for your hydraulic system and need to find out the required gas volume?
The solution HYDAC ASP – Accumulator Simulation Program.
HYDAC Technology GmbH has made significant improvements to its simulation program. In addition to correcting some program errors and improving handling, the following features are now also available in the new version “ASP 4.3”:
- Output of volume displacement work in simulation mode
- Automatic correction of pump and consumer flows during input
Needless to say, the well-established features also continue to be part of the program:
Accumulator sizing on a PC with Windows for bladder, piston and diaphragm accumulators and for systems using back-up nitrogen bottles. Isentropic, isothermal and polytropic changes in condition are taken into account.
Calculation of accumulator systems with the option of inputting accumulators, consumers and pumps with particular switch-on and switch-off times.
Simulation of pressure, temperature and volume over the given cycle time. Real gas equations are used for this and the accumulator type and its heat exchange behavior are taken into account in the calculation.
Accumulator sizing for pulsation dampers. Calculation of the gas volume and the residual pulsation of gas-filled pulsation dampers. Sizing of shock absorbers, calculation of the required gas volume for "shock". Complex pipe systems are possible on request.
