Hydraulic servo simulator in python

Hydraulic servo simulator in python

RE: Hydraulic servo simulator in python

Do you have a simulator, or are you asking if someone else does?

RE: Hydraulic servo simulator in python

How would it deal with the bulk modulus of the hydraulic fluid, and the stiffness of whatever structure is in the loop?

IRstuff knows I am a long time Mathcad power user but mathcad is no longer worth upgrading.
Python is free and object oriented so one can instantiate multiple instances of an object from a class definition. Mathcad requires a lot of cut and paste.
I have had the simulator below for years. I use it about once a month for solving real problems.

IRStuff, are you referring to servo motors?

I chose python because it is free, easy to read, modern and has pretty good scientific calculation abilities like Matlab. I do miss the symbolic math of Mathcad or Mathematica.
