Hydac has updated its Accumulator Simulation Program (ASP) calculation software with new features including a five dimensional structure.
Hydac revolutionised the process of calculating and simulating hydraulic accumulators in 1997 using program routines while taking into account real gas behaviours.
The completely revised ASP software, the ASP 5 features two new program sections and has moved from a three-dimensional to a five-dimensional structure. Updates have been made to the user interface as well as the process for printing, exporting and saving results. The visualisation of the simulation and displays for volume, pressure and temperature are clearly arranged for a better user experience.
Key features of Hydac’s ASP 5 software include: simulation with a completely fresh appearance and additional visual representation of the most important parameters; pressure shock damping, clearly arranged in one program window; pulsation damping, including corrected pump factors also presented in a clear program window; volume compensation during thermal expansion; and integration of the standalone simplified software ASPlight, also from Hydac.
Hydac’s ASP 5 supports German, English and French.
