Abstract

Switched Inertance Hydraulic Systems (SIHS) use inductive, capacitive, and switching elements to boost or buck a pressure from a source to a load in an ideally lossless manner. Real SIHS circuits suffer a variety of energy losses, with throttling of flow during transitions of the high-speed valve resulting in 44% of overall losses. These throttling energy losses can be mitigated by applying the analog of zero-voltageswitching, a soft switching strategy, adopted from power electronics. In the soft switching circuit, the flow that would otherwise be throttled across the transitioning valve is stored in a capacitive element and bypassed through check valves in parallel with the switching valves. To evaluate the effectiveness of soft switching in a boost converter SIHS, a lumped parameter model was constructed. The model demonstrates that soft switching can improve the efficiency of the circuit up to 42% and extend the power delivery capabilities of the circuit by 76%.
