Hydraulic system

To guarantee a high degree of security of the aerodynamic mechanism (elevons, rudder) the hydraulic system includes 3 independent circuits. Every circuit contains an hydraulic pump, a tank, fine and coarse cleaning filters, a battery, and sensors. The working liquid is a non corrosive silicone oil of reference 7-50C3. The pressure of the system is 20.5 MPa, the debit is 240 l/min and the working temperature is from -60°C to +175°C.
The functioning of the shuttle is possible even with 2 hydraulic systems out of order.
