Hydraulic power is used in many engineering systems like machine tools, heavy machinery, chemical processes, automotive equipment, aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles. All fluid power systems involve the use of a power unit comprised of pumps, valves, piping, tubing, and hoses that convey fluid under pressure.

This course provides general information on the types and applications of hydraulic prime movers such as rotary pumps, gear pumps, screw pumps and piston pumps along with the network of valves, piping, and fittings. It also discusses several types of seals and packing used in fluid power systems.
