Description

Title: Digital Displacement® Technology - Efficient hydraulics for the Digital Age
Speaker: Jamie Taylor, Artemis Intelligent Power Limited

Artemis invented Digital Displacement technology some 25 years ago and it represents a fundamental change from the traditional analogue control mechanisms used in hydraulic pumps for generations.  By using real time control of individual cylinders within a radial piston layout, Digital Displacement technology brings increased efficiency and higher bandwidth control to hydraulics providing CO2 savings as well as unlocking new system architectures for OEMs.  This digitisation of a major cornerstone of heavy duty power transfer is long overdue and takes hydraulic fully into the digital age.  In this talk I will give a brief history of the achievements with a look at some of the application areas that have benefited during that time, including development of a hydraulic series hybrid car and the multi-MW wind transmission development that resulted in the 7MW MHI wind turbines.

Speaker(s)

In his early career Jamie worked on the University of Edinburgh’s ‘Wave Power Project’. He went on to work in other renewables and to live in Bolivia. Returning to Scotland, he joined Artemis Intelligent Power and has led wind, hybrid transport and wave projects for twelve years.
